Dr. Ford, Head of the English 
Department at LVC, has spent the 
past year lecturing at the Univer- 
sity of Damascus in Syria. 
Granted a Fulbright Professor- 
ship at the University, Dr. Ford 
was responsible for two under- 
graduate and one graduate level 

Life at the University of 
Damascus presents a striking con- 
trast to the world of LVC . In his 
undergraduate lectures, Dr. Ford 
spoke to student groups con- 
sisting of four hundred students 
or more. Conditions in the 
classroom were seldom optimum. 
When there was electricity, there 
was still microphone failure to 
contend with. Dr. Ford often 
shouted his lectures aloud during 
the two hour sessions. 

Free for everyone, Syrian 
education differs immensely from 
the American system. Students 
can take the final exam without 
attending classes. Class participa- 
tion does not exist; students do 
not inter-act with the professor. 
Note-taking is not a simple pro- 
cess of "jotting down" main 
ideas; instead students attempt to 
capture every word on paper. 
Studying then consists of 
Memorizing these notes. If a 
Syrian were able to attend LVC, 
they would think "they had died 
jnd gone to Heaven," states Dr. 

One word of warning to pre- 
ssors, Dr. Ford spent his last 
Month in Syria grading 1487 
nnals, working eight hours a day. 
^ lxt y percent of the students 
jailed his course. This is lower 
tn an the norm. Dr. Ford com- 
men ts that the level of satisfaction 
and the ability to make an impact 

n students is severely lessened in 

comparison to LVC. 

Syria, which is in the center of 
one of the most troubled regions 
of the world, is nonetheless, ac- 
cording to Dr. Ford, "the most 
stable government in the Middle 
East at this point. " He states that 
he felt "perfectly safe" in 
Damascus despite the events 
taking place around him. 

Politically he says, "I don't 
like the Syrian government, but 
I like the people. Syrians can love 
their country without loving their 
government." Syrians also 
disassociate the individual from 
governmental policies, a tenden- 
cy which Dr. Ford recommends 
for other nations. 

Many people believe that 
Damascus is the oldest inhabited 
city in the world. The city 
abounds with religious sites such 
as the chapel that hid St. Paul or 
the Umayyad Mosque. The Mos- 
que is located on what once was 
a pagan sacrificial site, which 
later hosted a Roman temple. A 
Christian church was the 
predecessor to the Mosque. This 
exemplified the rich religious 
heritage which permeates the 

On the whole, Dr. Ford found 
Syria "endlessly interesting." He 
says, in reference to the Syrians, 
"We (he and his wife) have 
lived in a lot of different places 
and travelled a lot and as far as 
I was concerned, as a group, they 
were the nicest, kindest, most 
considerate, gracious people that 
I've met." 

Dr. Ford sums up by saying, "I 
urge everyone to study abroad. I 
think the experience of living in 
another culture is that important 
— living in another culture 
changes you."

LVC Enters Into 
New Beginning" 

by Scott Kirk 

With the departure of several 
administrative staff, Lebanon 
Valley has entered into President 
Peterson's "New Beginning" 
through financial aid, economics, 
chemistry, communications, 
administration and internal 

Ronald K. Good of Ephrata has 
been named Assistant Dean of 
Admissions and Financial Aid. 
Good has been an admissions 
counselor at Lebanon Valley 
since 1983. Prior to his work at 
LVC, he was a counselor at Con- 
estoga Valley High School in 
Lancaster for 15 years and at 
Ephrata High School for 3 years. 
While on sabbatical from CVHS, 
he served an internship as an 
assistant in LVC's Admissions 
Office. He replaces Christine A. 
Koterba, former Director of 
Financial Aid, who accepted a 
position at Franklin and Marshall 
College last August. 

Good will be responsible for 
such tasks as developing and 
revising the financial aid 
packages for the student body, 
and evaluating campus employ- 
ment and departmental needs. 
"My primary responsibility is to 
make the office accessible to the 
students," he explained. "But I'll 
also be able to work with fam- 
ilies. I'm here for both prospec- 
tive and current students." His 
combined title will also allow him 
to assist Dean Stanson with col- 
lege night programs and admis- 
sions interviews. 

Dr. Sherman Thomas Folland 
was appointed assistant professor 
of economics last June. Folland, 
a Middletown resident, received 
his doctoral degree from the 
University of Iowa. Before com- 
ing to LVC, he was assistant pro- 
fessor of health planning and 
economics at Perm State's Capitol

Fills In 

by Scott Kirk 

Dr. John D. Norton, III, 
Associate Professor of Political 
Science, has been appointed 
Acting Vice President and Dean 
of the Faculty for the 1985-86 
academic year. Meanwhile, an 
8 -member faculty search com- 
mittee is seeking out qualified 
candidates to fill the position 
vacated by Richard Reed. 

Norton will assist President 
Peterson in such daily activities 
as handling student complaints, 
making sure the faculty complies 
with posting schedules, approv- 
ing expense requests for faculty, 
and seeing that adjunct faculty 
members are hired to instruct 
additional course sections. But his 
job description involves more 
work than that. According to the 
LVC Policy Manual, the Vice 
President and Dean of the 
Faculty is "...responsible for 
developing and supervising the 
academic program, the Faculty 
personnel and the academic sup- 
port personnel, and the budget 
allocated to the academic pro- 
gram. He advises and informs the 
President on all areas which af- 
fect educational and personnel 
policy, program development, 
and student achievement." 

In addition to these areas, Nor- 
ton will be responsible for 
evaluating personnel and recom- 
mending promotions, tenure, 
salary changes, leaves, and 
dismissals, as well as identifying 
budgetary needs and allocations. 
Assisting him in these daily 
operations will be the Registrar, 
Librarian, Director of Media Ser- 
vices, and additional ad- 
ministraive staff. 

Norton has recently devoted a 
great deal of time to the new 
Hospitality Program, in which 
graduates earn an Associate in 
Applied Science degree. Also

2 THE QUAD Thursday, September 12, 1985 



by Pete Johansson 

A new year. Never mind that it's not January first, students all over 
campus (and a good number of faculty and administration, I'll wager) 
have made all kinds of New Year's Resolutions. This year I'm not 
going to get behind in my work. This year I'm going to keep my room 
clean. This year I'm going to make the first string. This year I'm 
not going to bounce any checks. 

Freshmen, too, have their private agendas. This year I'm going 
to get a 4.0. This year I'm going to make eight new friends. This 
year I'm going to stay in touch with my boyfriend/girlfriend back 
home. This year I'm going to dump my boyfriend/girlfriend back 
home at the earliest available opportunity. 

Look, let's face some facts. You know as well as I do that 90% 
of these resolutions are barely going to make it out of the starting 
gate. Sure, most of us will make it through the year somehow, but 
we're not going to do it by being any less lazy, unindustrious, or 
downright slovenly than we were the year before. Change is rough, 
and why bother changing anything when we've made it this far? 

Well, there is a reason, and it goes back to something I mentioned 
in an editorial last year that may be hard to swallow, but I think still 
holds water (when you become Managing Editor, you're allowed to 
mix metaphors). College is not much different from "the real world." 
By that I mean the same kinds of things that bog you down while 
you're in college still manifest themselves somehow when you're out 
in the working world. That's because there's a reason behind every 
bad habit we have. Very few people put off studying, drink too much, 
let their budgets go, smoke, or any of a hundred other things simply 

because it's fun to do. Take dieting, for example. Few people renege 
on their diets because they enjoy being fat. Most people overeat 
because of mounting pressure, or because they have problems 
regimenting their lives. The trick is to find the reason behind the bad 
habit. Don't just eliminate the habit, look at the reasons behind it. 

How is that done? Take out a piece of paper. Draw a line down 
the middle, from top to bottom. Then draw a line across, so you've 
divided the paper into four sections. Congratulations, you're well on 
the way to self-improvement. Now pick one goal for yourself. Make 
it specific, and make it attainable. Write down your one, specific, 
attainable goal in the upper left section. In the upper right section, 
write down how that goal can be attained. What specific things can 
you do to keep yourself on course? How will you be able to tell 
whether or not you're on course? Who can help you attain your goal? 
In the lower left section, write down things you can do to subvert 
the goal. What kinds of things are going to crop up that will keep 
you from reaching your goal? Finally, in the lower right section, write 
down how you will know when that goal has been attained. In what 
specific ways will you be able to measure your progress? Now tack 
it up in your room somewhere where it will harass you all semester. 

This will be a lot of work, but it will be worth it. College is the 
perfect place to correct bad habits. College is probably going to be 
the last place you'll be where you're actually expected to screw up 
now and then, so you might as well work on these things while you've 
still got breathing room. It won't be easy, but remember the words 
of Francis Quarles, writing back in 1640: "I see no virture where 
I smell no sweat." 

Spring Arts Blues 

by Tracy Wenger 

Spring Arts. What is it? What does it mean to the LVC campus? 
Will it happen again this year? And, probably the biggest question 
of all: if we have it, who will organize and coordinate the festival? 
Not me. I've been asked, but I've never even worked on a committee 
for the festival in the past. Not anyone who has ever worked on the 
festival staff before. None of them want to take charge of such a huge 
project. It looks like the festival may die; and although no one wants 
to be "coordinator" of the festival, I doubt if anyone really wants 
to see the festival die. After thinking about this problem, I've come 
up with the idea that the only way to save the festival is to redefine 
it in terms of the questions I asked earlier. What is it? What does 
it mean to the LVC campus? Who is responsible for its production 
(both manpower and monetary)? Will we have it every year? 

What is the Spring Arts Festival? Some people say that it's just 
a big party weekend for all LVC students and alums. Others argue 
that it is a good chance for the organizations and clubs of LVC to 
work in booths and make a profit to support themselves for the next 
year. In its earliest concept, it was a festival to exhibit and celebrate 
all forms of art. It was something the students did as a "good will 
effort" for the community. It still remains a community activity, as 
a majority of those attending the festival are non-LVC students. 

What does the festival mean to the LVC campus? I've already said 
that some think it's a party weekend, while others take it as a chance

to make money. I think, that it's one of the best activities offered 
on the LVC campus. It is a celebration weekend with lots of people, 
singing, dancing, crafts, and of course — plenty of good food. To 
be at the festival is to feel good about LVC. To see all those people 
on our campus enjoying themselves should bring pride to the students, 
faculty, and administration. 

Who is responsible for its production (both manpower and money)? 
As I said before, the festival was originally an activity sponsored by 
the students for the community in the Lebanon Valley area. The 
students organized, coordinated, and provided the manpower to set 
up and run the festival with help from several faculty advisors on the 
steering committee. Because the festival was an "arts" festival, the 
students were able to get a state grant each year to help fund the 
festival, along with money from the LVC student council. The 
College used to donate money to the festival, but in recent years has 
chosen not to. In addition, last year the festival did not receive state 
grant money because there was question as to whether the festival 
was really a festival of the arts run for the community rather than 
for the LVC campus. Everyone seems to want to avoid taking respon- 
sibility. The administration will not give money because it's a 
community arts festival and it should get money from the state. The 
state says it's too college-oriented and it should get money from the 
College. This year, however, it may not matter how much money 
there is if no one wants to work to see the festival continue. 

That brings us to the final question: Will the festival continue this 
year? There are many people, like myself, who are willing to head 
a committee, but no one wants all the "headaches" associated with 
being the one person in charge. Maybe the job of festival "coor- 
dinator" is too big for one student with a full coarse load (who would 
also like to pass his/her courses) to handle. If it is, then perhaps there 
is a way that the committee heads can run the festival with no one 
in charge — their votes being the only controlling factor. Perhaps 
it's not too big a job and there is someone out there who hasn't been 
heard from yet that is ready for a challenge like coordinating the 

In any event, if the festival belongs to the students and is to con- 
tinue to be controlled and run by the Students of LVC, WE HAVE 
I'm asking you to think about the questions we're being presented 
with and try to come up with some answers quickly, because the final 
question is still hanging in the air: Will the Spring Arts Festival 
continue this year? 


by Mark Scott 

I've borrowed the title of 
former UN Ambassador Jeane 
Kirkpatrick's book for the title of 
this issue's column because I 
think it best illustrates a 
phenomenon that has hit many of 
the nation's campuses. This is the 
inconsistency concerning the call 
for disinvestment in South Africa 
and its apartheid policy. 

No, I am not going to try and 
justify or even condone this 
policy of official racial 
discrimination and exclusion 
from the government of South 
Africa's black majority by its 
white minority. As an American, 
I believe in freedom and the 
equality of all men. Truly, 
apartheid is reprehensible and 
must be stopped. 

However, for many American 
citizens and students to make this 
the most pressing issue of the day 
— indeed, to try to force another 
democratic government to change 
its policies overnight while not 
even batting an eyelash at the 
most repressive regime in history 
is truly a double standard. Even 
as you read this, the Soviet Em- 
pire of Evil is systematically kill- 
ing the people of Afghanistan and 
propping up repressive regimes 
that threaten our national 
security. Meanwhile, the naive 
American liberals are ranting and 
raving about how we should 
disinvest from another 
democratic country. 

Well, ignorance is the reason 
for this. So here are the facts. 
This summer I was able to talk 
with representatives of the South 
African government — not all 
white, either. I also have friends 
who were in South Africa this 
summer, and together, they have 
enlightened me with these facts, 
as I understand them. 

FACT. Desmond Tutu does 
not represent even a medium 
sized group of blacks. The 
Anglican church of which he is a 
bishop is miniscule. He has been 
a fighter, true, but he is not the 
spokesman or representative of 
even a small number of the black 

FACT. The white minority 
government is trying to change- 
It has already granted represen- 
tation to Indians and mixed-race 
people, and will, in time, reform 
further. It has already repealed 
the law against mixed marriages- 
However, this will take time. B 
took the U.S. 100 years to outlaw 
slavery, and another 100 years to 
even begin the civil rights move- 
ment. It takes time to make 
radical changes in racial policy 

FACT. When the U.S. and 
other countries have been more

cont. from p. 2 

pressing in their demands for 
change in South Africa, there has 
been less reform than when 
policies like Constructive 
Engagement, with its milder 
pressure, have been used. 

FACT. Most of the violence in 
South Africa today is intertribal, 
inter-black conflict, not directed 
solely at the white government. 

FACT. We are not getting the 
whole story here in America from 
our news media. This is breeding 
more ignorance. For example, 
take South African President 
Pieter Botha's most recent speech 
to his National Party. In it, he 
outlined a series of reforms, but 
announced that he would stop 
short of ending apartheid too 
soon. But what did all the 
headlines say? Something like 
"Botha again refuses to end apar- 
theid" without even mentioning 
the reforms. 

FACT. Disinvestment will hurt 
the black South Africans current- 
ly employed through American 
investment much more than it will 
hurt the whites. If all the blacks 
currently employed through U.S. 
investment were to lose their 
jobs, there would almost certain- 
ly be a revolution. This is white 
South Africa's biggest fear. They 
fear that if they let go too quick- 
ly, or if such an economic 
disaster were to occur, then the 
same thing will happen to them 
that happened when Rhodesia 
became Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is 
not only communist, but the black 
majority government there is 
repressing the whites. There is 
considerable evidence that much 
of the trouble now occuring in 
South Africa is Marxist inspired. 
A communist South Africa would 
be a major blow to the free world. 
Strategically, South Africa con- 
trols the Horn of Africa and its 
shipping lanes. Moreover, South 
Africa is one of the richest 
mineral resource areas in the 
w °rld. Diamonds, gold, 
chromium, uranium, the list goes 
°n and on. 

So what are we doing? We are 
demonstrating against one of our 
democratic allies and threatening 
their very economy while we sit 
°ack as our enemy is conquering 
and subduing Afghanistan with 
bombs that look like toys that are 
seeded among the civilian popula-

"Working at the College is very 
satisfying for me. I'm surround- 
ed by young people, and they in 
turn keep me young-in-heart," 
says Bill Rothermel, a 15-year 
maintenance staff employee. 

Bill considers one of his retire- 
ment year hobbies to be the 
custodial job he has in 
Funkhouser East. A building con- 
tractor by trade, Bill operated the 
Lebanon business with his father 
and took it over when his father 
died. "The business became a rat 
race because of regulations and 
lawsuits," said Bill. So after 35 
years in the business, Bill retired. 
He wanted something to do so he 
came to the College hoping to 
find a carpentry job. There was 
no carpentry job, only a custodial 
job available in Funkhouser. 

Bill has not spent his entire life 
in the Lebanon community. 
World War II called Bill to duty. 
He enlisted in the Army Medical 
Corps in 1941. First, Rothermel 
served in field hospitals as a Bat- 
talion Aid Man but later receiv- 
ed training as a surgical techni- 
cian. "If you want something, 
you have to go for it," com- 

Bill: The Man, The Myth 

mented Rothermel. "I wanted to 
do more than serve as an aide, 
that's why I enrolled in the 
surgical technican course." 

After he received training as a 
technician, Bill worked with the 
Medical Department 19th 
General Hospital in France where 
over 33,000 casualties were 

"Many times I worked as first 
Assistant with Surgeons in 
operating rooms," said 
Rothermel. "One time I was left 
to do the stitches." 

During the four years and nine 
months spent in World War II, 
Rothermel 's tour of duty in- 
cluded England, Scotland, Wales, 
France and Germany. The ex- 
periences encountered during 
those nearly five years lead Bill 
to receive 5 service medals and 
2 Bronze Stars. 

"I've made a lot of lasting 
friendships," said Bill, commen- 
ting of his experiences as custo- 
dian. "Once I played the role of 
an away-from-home-father to a 
foreign student for four years." 

Bill would visit the Venezuelan 
student, especially during the 

holidays when he stayed in a hotel 
since the dorms were closed. 

As Bill has observed the 
students in the past 15 years, he 
has noticed that they have become 
.more serious and determined 
about their education. "When I 
started the students were not too 
serious," said Bill. "If you want 
something bad enough, you will 
get it. The College is stressing 
leadership. You can't be a 
follower all your life. Eventual- 
ly you will be on your own; do 
something now — become in- 

There are a few dorm incidents 
which Bill recalls. For instance, 
he remembers rooms being stuff- 
ed with newspapers. "We would 
have one big party cleaning it up. 
We would get black from the 
print. If people wouldn't like 
someone, they would not bother 
doing something like this," Bill 

Rothermel has been familiar 
with the College over the years. 
His wife, Anna Louise, is a 1939 
LVC graduate. He commented on 
their marriage of 36 years, "I'm 
married 36 years to the same 

woman; and it's working perfect- 
ly. She doesn't understand me, 
and I don't understand her; a 
complete misunderstanding. But 
I love her — and she loves me. " 

In addition to his "student" 
hobby, Bill enjoys coin collec- 
ting, bicycling which he tries to 
do every evening, and reading 
everything from the Bible to 
Playboy. "I am living a full and 
happy life — and exciting too," 
he commented. He jokingly said, 
"When you get old, you do forget 
things. Sometimes I can't 
remember my own telephone 
number; but then that's not too 
important, because I never call 
myself anyway. I do write a lot 
of notes to myself though." 

"My philosophy on life is very 
simple," said Bill. "—Two 
words — 'Think Positive.' I am 
reminded of a poem that I had to 
memorize in English class in high 
school. I still remember it well. 
Would you like to hear it? It 
really says it all. A poem by 
Rudyard Kipling, TF'. Here 
goes: 'If you can keep your head 
when all about you are losing 
theirs and...' " 

LVC Hospitality 

by Scott Kirk 

The rumor mill has it that 5 1 
LVC students are checking into 
hotels one night each week this 
Fall. How's that? You heard it 
right. But what you didn't hear 
about are three new programs in 
hospitality/hotel management 
added to LV's curriculum. 

Glenn H. Woods, Associate 
Professor of English and Direc- 
tor of Hospitality Programs, has 
brought in professionals from the 
industry to provide classroom 
training in Food Service Ad- 
ministration, Hotel Administra- 
tion and Travel Administration. 
Students and community mem- 
bers preparing for careers in these 
fields will learn about the inner 
workings of the tourism industry. 
They will receive an Associate in 
Applied Science Degree in the 
two-year pilot program. 

H. Robert Becker, president of 
Capital International Tours in 
New Cumberland, will offer "In- 
troduction to the Travel and 
Tourism Industry." Becker, who 
holds degrees from Mansfield, 
Villanova and Penn State, 
develops new tour packages and 
clubs, manages a sales force and 
handles the company's public 
relations and advertising. 

Neil P. Koopman, former 
general manager of the Quality 
Inn in Lebanon, will teach "In- 
troduction to the Hospitality In- 
dustry." Koopman, who holds a 
degree in hotel administration 

from Cornell University, was 
responsible for all aspects of the 
Inn's activities, including food 
and beverage operations, 
budgeting, office, promotions, 
maintenance and capital renova- 
tions. Currently, he and his wife 
Eleanor operate the Windward 
Travel Agency in Lebanon. 

James Schall, of the Hershey 
Lodge and Convention Center, 
will instruct "Dining Room 
Procedures." Schall holds a 
bachelor's degree in hotel ad- 
ministration from Penn State and 
a master's in management and 
administration from Indiana 
University, Bloomington. He 
previously worked for Stouffer's 
Restaurant in Chicago. 

Although many of the skills 
learned through the program are 
highly technical, special emphasis 
also is placed on the liberal arts. 
According to Woods, the 
Associate in Applied Science 
degree requires a total of 60 
credits: 30 credits in the ad- 
ministrative program of one par- 
ticular area and 30 credits of core 
requirements. The latter of these 
credits includes the courses many 
full-time students take in the 
bachelor's degree program — 
English, accounting, mathe- 
matics, management and 

Woods also mentioned a 1-12 
credit internship requirement in

Pennsylvania, was killed in an auto accident on June 27th of this year. 
The funeral mass was held July 2nd at St. Stephen's Catholic Church 
in Port Carbon. 

Bertha B. Blair, trustee emeritus of the college, and for whom the 
Blair Music Center was named, died July 12th of this year. Funeral 
services were held July 15th at Trinity Lutheran Church, Ephrata. 

Leonard S. Geissel, Jr., assistant professor of music, died of 
leukemia July 15th of this year. Funeral services were held July 17th 
at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Lebanon.

According to Steve Shoop, 
director of the computer center, 
there were a couple computers set 
up around campus, but now they 
are in a more concentrated area. 
He said students can use them 
many ways including word pro- 
cessing, spread sheets and for 
business courses. 

Shoop said there are 17 com- 
puters: seven Apple IIEs, six 
IBM PCs and four Zenith Z150s, 
which are IBM compatible. The 
lab also has five printers: three 

wide ones, which can print up to 
132 characters across, and two 
narrow, which use S l A x 1 1 inch 

After the lab is moved to the 
library, students will be able to 
check out software with their 
identificiation cards. Students can 
also use the micro-computer lab 
like the present computer lab in 
the bottom of the library. The 
present computer lab opens when 
the library does and remains open 
as long as students are using it. 

According to Shoop, the equip- 
ment was ordered near the end of 
the spring semester and the 
Apples were set up for computer 
camps. Shoop added that more 
and more equipment was set up 
as people found out about it.

majors/departments. "I'm hoping 
to have some restructuring 
recommendations ready for the 
next Dean," he explained. 

Norton's third area of concern 
centers around a possible physical 
implementation of President 
Peterson's leadership objective. 
According to Norton, the leader- 
ship development steering com- 
mittee is researching how to make 
a "leadership component' ' part of 
LVC's core requirements. The 
proposed requirement would in- 
tensify Lebanon Valley's slogan 
of "America's Leadership Col- 

Looking back, Norton recalls 
his anxiety last August when he 
started the job. "The first week, 
my major emotion was panic! It 
seemed like such a huge job that 
I didn't know anything about. I 
was under tremendous pressure— 
and I'm still trying to understand 
what I'm doing!" 

Now, after only about a month 
and a half, he says he feels a lit- 
tle more comfortable. "Things 
I've been encountering haven't 
been beyond my scope or 
abilities. I like the work — there 
could be a little bit less of it, 
though," he added. 

A 1965 graduate of the Univer- 
sity of Illinois, Norton earned his 
Master of Arts in East Asian Af- 
fairs from Florida State Univer- 
sity and his PhD in Political 
Science from American Univer- 
s "y- He has been at LVC since 
197 1, and since then has served

Management; William E. Hough, 
III, Librarian; Robert C. Lau, 
Chairman of the Music Depart- 
ment and Susan E. Verhoek, 
Associate Professor of Biology. 

The search committee, which 
meets each Wendesday, has to 
date placed an advertisement in 
the Chronicle of Higher Educa- 
tion. According to Byrne, co- 
committee chairman, applicants 
should start responding shortly 
after the ad appears in late 
September. The screening pro- 
cess will run through mid-March, 
when the committee hopes to 
make final recommendations to 
the President. 

Marquette, also co-chairman, 
called attention to the fact that the 
students also will be included in 
the process. "I strongly en- 
courage all students to meet and 
talk with the recommended can- 
didate when he/she is chosen," 
he said. "It's important to obtain 
student input as well."

Enthusiasm High As 
LV Returns to MAC 

by Ken Kuehn 

The 1985 LVC football team 
enters the season with a healthy 
attitude and a stong team spirit. 
The major goal of the team in this 
1985 season, according to head 
coach, Lou Sorrentino, is to im- 
prove on last year's 1-9 record. 

Coach Sorrentino has high 
hopes for this year's freshmen 
class, particularly Brian 
Sultzbach, Guy Dente, and Todd 
Grill. Sorrentino is counting on 
returning team captains junior 
linebacker Greg Hessinger and 
senior quarterback Kevin Peters 
to provide leadership and ex- 
perience for the young team. 

This season, Lebanon Valley 
enters the Middle Atlantic 
Conference. By entering this 
conference, Coach Sorrentino 
believes that it will provide 
recognition for the school and the 
players. Sorrentino also felt that 
this move to the MAC will 

"upgrade the program through 
stronger recruitment." 

Sorrentino considered this 
move as part of President Peter- 
son's leadership campaign for 
Lebanon Valley College. As part 
of this leadership program, the 
athletic committee is looking in- 
to revamping the school's athletic 
facilities as well as increasing aid 
for athletes. "There is nothing il- 
legal about this," says Sorren- 
tino, "other schools in the MAC 
provide additional aid for their 

The 1985 team does not yet 
have these benefits and hopes to 
rely on the team's morale and 
youth to hold the team together in 
this building year. "Football is a 
game of spirit," states Sorren- 
tino, "and with this team's spirit, 
I feel we will improve." 

After last week's 37-0 defeat to 
Juniata, the team travels to play 
Wilkes this Saturday.

Jill Murray, a senior Interna- 
tional Business major, spent 5 
weeks of last summer studying in 
Madrid, Spain, and a 1 week stay 
in Portugal. Murray was one of 
four current LVC students who 
spent time abroad within the past 

As part of the Rutgers Univer- 
sity program, Murray earned 6 
credits at the University of 
Salamanca near Madrid. Her 
courses included work in Spanish 
language, culture, grammar and 
literature, and a Spanish dance 

As you might expect, Murray 
found living in another culture 
exciting and challenging. "I 
dreamt in Spanish, talked in 
Spanish, and had nightmares in 
Spanish!" she admitted. But she 
had a few real-life nightmares, 
too. "In Sevilla, I was walking 
alone at 3 in the afternoon and 
these 4 guys on motorcycles 
mugged me. I held onto my purse 
and ended up throwing one off his 
cycle. The whole time this was 
happening, some lady from up 
above in a house just stood there, 

After dinner that evening, Mur- 
ray saw a man stealing a stereo 
out of a car . "I was screaming to 
these cops in Spanish, and when 
they saw it, they got me into the 
c ar and we drove through all 
those narrow streets. I guess that 
da y was my 'crime stopper' 
d ay," she laughed. 

Murray noted that the living 
conditions were also "different." 

We stayed in coed dorms, with 
c °ed bathrooms! It took a little 
w hile to get used to," she added. 

According to Murray, the sum- 
experience helped her to 
learn a little Portuguese, as well 

as reinforcing her Spanish speak- 
ing skills. "I learned a lot of new 
words, and I managed to put 
sentences together a lot easier, " 
she said. "(The experience) was 
marvelous and wonderful," she 
noted. "You learn a lot, but you 
have to be careful." 

Her future plans include a 
marketing and advertising career 
in cultures and customs, and 
possible trips to Japan, China, 
Egypt and Israel. 

Elaine Hoilman, a senior inter- 
national business/Spanish major, 
spent her junior year stationed in 
Grenada, but also found time to 
travel to Italy, Portugal, Africa 
and all over the north, central and 
south of Spain. "I got to know 
Spain better than my hometown 
in Maryland," she said. 

Enrolled under Central Col- 
lege's international studies pro- 
gram, Hoilman took courses in- 
cluding international economics, 
sociology, business, history and 
modern literature. "My classes 
were so intense, " she explained. 
"The profs don't have them 
geared down for American 
students — it's like a native talk- 
ing to other natives. And you 
were expected to show full 
respect in class. It was a really 
strict structure. And classes with 
Spaniards were great. If a 
Spanish student disapproved of 
the information a prof, was giv- 
ing, he'd ask if the prof, had his 
facts right!" 

While she learned much vocab- 
ulary, tradition and culture 
through classes, Hoilman found 
additional educational sources 
outside of the classroom. "The 
streets are your campus over 
there. You have a lot of free time

At last Fall is here, and that can only mean one thing: new TV 
shows are here to distract us from our studies. Each year the three 
networks, in an event that is as admirably optimistic as it is pathetic, 
flood the airwaves with brand new crap. Some shows will do well, 
others will fail. Quality has little to do with it. With this in mind, 
I'd like to take the opportunity to make my predictions as to which 
shows will last more than one season and which will die in their 
infancy (or, as in some cases, which will be stillborn). As we go 
through the list, please try to keep in mind that actual grown-up adults 
are responsible for the new programs. 

Hollywood Beat (ABC): This is one of two Miami Vice rip-offs that 
ABC is offering this season. Don't look for it next year. 

Lime Street (ABC): Another rich detective series starring Robert 
Wagner. This might have had a chance had it not been scheduled 
against Golden Girls. 

Golden Girls (NBC): A good cast aided by solid writing. This one 
will last a while. 

227 (NBC): People cannot seem to watch only a half an hour of 
television. Instead of using 30 minutes to take a bath, do a crossword 
puzzle, write a letter, wash the dishes, or any of a hundred other 
profitable things, people will watch 227 because it follows Golden 

MacGyver (ABC): ABC's attempt at another Raiders of the Lost 
Ark rip-off (remember Tales of the Gold Monkey?). If this doesn't 
die on its own merits, then the fact that anyone not watching Murder, 
She Wrote or Amazing Stories on Sunday night isn't watching 
television, will do it in. 

Amazing Stories (NBC): This is going to make it big. Even if it 
doesn't, NBC has contracted with Steven Spielberg to do two seasons 
of this, so they might as well not waste the stories. 

Alfred Hitchcock Presents (NBC): Even if this didn't follow Amazing 
Stories it would last. 

Growing Pains (ABC): Yet another trash sitcom from ABC. Don't 
look for another season. 

Our Family Honor (ABC): Yet another trash nighttime soap from 
ABC. History by December. 

Insiders (ABC): ABC's other Miami Vice rip-off. Since television 
is already saturated with Los Angeles cop shows, this one will get 
bumped off early. 

Charlie & Company (CBS): Even though it looks like it could be 
a Cosby Show rip-off, I think Flip Wilson will carry this show into 
a second season. 

George Burns Comedy Week (CBS): Surprisingly, this one is close 
to call. Since there's nothing particularly strong scheduled against 
it, I'll predict this one will make it. 

Hell Town (NBC): As much as I am repulsed by the idea of Robert 
Blake playing a priest, there are probably enough hairy-knuckle types 
out there to make this show a hit. 

Stir Crazy (CBS): CBS put the nails in the coffin lid when they 
decided to make this show an hour long. 

The Equalizer (CBS): A one-man A-Team. This show will last. 

Lady Blue (ABC): A lady cop show. How innovative. Anyone who's 
not watching Cheers on Thursday nights is watching Simon & Simon, 
or they're not watching television at all.

Dynasty II: The Colby s (ABC): Forget it. 

The Twilight Zone (CBS): Impossible to miss. This is really going 
to brighten up a Friday night. 

Misfits of Science (NBC): Watch the debut episode of this show, 
because it may be the only time you'll ever see it. 

Spenser For Hire (ABC): If you have to put a show opposite Miami 
Vice, don't make it a detective show or it will fail. This is a detective 
show. It will fail. 

Out of twenty new shows, nine will make it into a second season. 
That sounds reasonable, until you take a closer look. ABC is 
offering nine of these twenty, almost half, and I've predicted that all 
nine will fail. If this happens, it may set a record, which wouldn't 
really surprise me because ABC is rapidly losing the right to call itself 
a network. If it weren't for Monday Night Football, Nightline, and 
an occasional James Bond movie, I wouldn't know where ABC was 
on the dial. 

CBS will be four for five. There's nothing very innovative going 
on this year, but the strength of the returning shows will keep CBS 
fairly strong. However, this is the year for NBC. They're going to 
be five for six, and of the five shows I pick as real ratings winners 
(Golden Girls, Amazing Stories, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Hell 
Town, and The Twilight Zone), NBC has four. They should be enough 
to push the network into first place. 

Big deal, you say? Yeah, you're probably right. I think your best 
bet this fall would be buy a Scrabble game for those hours of 
relaxation. Take up a hobby. Chat with old friends. Make new friends. 
But for the most part, stay away from your TV set. This isn't going 
to be a year for stupendous entertainment, unless you provide it 


by Maria Montesano 

My neighbor in Palmyra recently opened my eyes to one outsider's 
view of LVC. He asked me, "Where is LVC going?" I wasn't quite 
sure what he meant but as he went on, I began to catch on. 

We are a liberal arts college and who can tell us if liberal arts will 
still be "in" ten years from now? But more than that point, he 
questioned if "America's Leadership College" is going to get us there. 

He made the assumption that leadership is not necessarily taught, 
but something we are born with. And besides, what is the role of a 
leadership college anyway? I can't say that I know, and it's not that 
I haven't been listening either. 

I agree President Peterson sounded good when he said, LVC stood 
for ' 'Life-long learning for leadership Kalues based upon the liberal 
arts, and leading to a sense of Community," but aren't we going a 
little overboard with this leadership? And what happened to the values 
and community? 

With my neighbor's views in mind, I see LVC faced with a choice 
about its future — its "strategic plan." 

First, we could lighten up on the leadership and look at what is 
needed to allow LVC to survive otherwise. 

Or, we could evaluate this whole leadership program — what it 
is, what it means, how it will affect us — in general, what role it 
plays in LVC's future. 

Right now, I tend toward the first choice. Except for being tired 
of hearing the word "leadership" and worrying if it's in print in The 
Quad or not, it hasn't affected me otherwise. Prove me wrong and 
I'll concede. 


In the last issue, The Quad incorrectly reported the name of 
the Funkhouser East custodian as Bill Rothermel. The custo- 
dian's name is Bill Blatt. The Quad regrets the error.

The past two weeks have been 
most disappointing newswise. It's 
not so much that there has been 
a lot of bad news, but if you are 
writing a news commentary 
column, and there isn't much to 
write about, it's a real drag. The 
Philadelphia Inquirer 's being on 
strike doesn't help things, either. 

On the political spectrum, 
President Reagan is getting ready 
for his summit later this fall with 
Soviet leader Gorbachev. This 
summit could be significant either 
for what it accomplishes or for 
what it fails to accomplish. 
Regardless of what happens, 
don't get your hopes up for any 
miracles of detente again. There 
will likely be little progress 
towards new accord. However, 
this is not to say that it shouldn't 
occur. This summit is going to be 
a breakthrough in itself just 
because it is occurring. The hope 
is that at the very least, talking to 
each other will help improve 

Interestingly, the papers are 
reporting that former President 
Richard Nixon, himself a foreign 
affairs expert, is helping the 
President to prepare for the 
meeting. This is good because 
Nixon was probably the most suc- 
cessful president we've had when 
it comes to dealing with the 
Soviets. His book, The Real War, 
is on top of the President's 
reading list, and should be on top

story this week is about China. 
Leader Deng Xiaoping is really 
making headway over there. The 
phrase Time uses is "Moving 
away from Marx." He is install- 
ing a new generation of moderate 
leaders to take his almost counter- 
revolutionary ideas even farther. 
China could soon be the true 
friend and ally that many are 
hoping for, especially vis-a-vis 
the Soviets. It is up to the U.S. 
to insure that China stays on this

to learn the culture on your own. 
I made friends with a lot of 
Spaniards because they all 
thought I was from the north of 
Spain and I spoke the language 
constantly," she explained. 

Hoilman noted that she spent a 
lot of time studying in bars and 
outdoor cafes. "It's very much 
accepted over there because the 
libraries are so small. You go to 
a nice Spanish lounge something 
like a Sheraton or a Marriott." 
After accustoming herself to the 
Spanish language, Hoilman found 
a "re-entry culture shock" when 
she returned this year. "I was 
showing my passport and didn't 
realize I was still speaking 
Spanish in America! The lady just 
looked at the American address 
on it and asked me why I was 
speaking it. I didn't even realize 
it until she said something." 

Looking back on her experi- 
ence, Hoilman remembers the in- 
delible "high-handed attitude" 
she saw in other Americans. 
Aside from insistance on the 
English language and other 
American demands on foreign- 
ers, she saw a condescending 
mockery of what Americans 
deem as wrong. "You can't put 
a culture down because it's dif- 
ferent than yours. There is no 
right and wrong — just right," 
she suggested. 

Barb Long, a senior Interna- 
tional Business/Spanish major, 
spent last year in Grenada, 
located in the south of Spain. 
After a month-long orientation in 
northern Spain, she moved in 
with an older couple who spoke 
no English. 

Enrolled in the same interna- 
tional studies program with Cen- 
tral College in Iowa, Long took 
courses within the University of 
Grenada's School of Translators 
and Interpreters. Her classes in- 

cluded history, geography and in- 
ternational economics of the 

While she had those classes with 
other exchange students, Long 
recalls that some Spanish students 
were enrolled as well. "Most of 
them were a lot older, " she ex- 
plained, "because they have to 
pass courses after high school 
(like our junior college) before 
they can be admitted to the 
university. Very few get to this 

Long admits that the experi- 
ence brought out a lot of her in- 
dependence. "It was my first 
time out of the country ever. ' ' 
There were other American 
students like Elaine in the pro- 
gram, but "we really were each 
alone in the city. The program 
split us up and set us out. We lost 
all our American cliques, and our 
English. It was hard at first; after 
we split up from orientation, we 
were responsible for getting a 
taxi, looking up the address of 
our host house, and then finding 
it." She confided, "It was scary 
and frightening, but it was 
probably the best thing that could 
happen because you had no one 
to rely on but yourself. ' ' 

Long discovered how wrong 
American stereotypes are of the 
Spanish. "We really have a lack 
of knowledge in regard to 
Europe. It really gets to you when 
you live over there. ' ' But she also 
found some Spanish distortions 
about us. "The Spanish think 
Americans are all cowboy types, 
and we're all loaded. The woman 
I was staying with had a hard time 
believing that I had to watch my 
money! I had to explain to her 
over and over that not everybody 
has tons," she said. 

At the close of her year, Long 
also discovered it was "very hard 
to come back here. It was sort of 

a shock all over again. I'd do it 
all again. It was more educational 
than any of my other years of 
study. I just can't believe it's 

Karen Macrides, a junior inter- 
national business/Spanish major, 
spent 7 weeks this summer in a 
private school in Madrid called 
Estudio International Sampre. In- 
dependently arranged, her study 
included courses in European 
Economic Communication, 
grammar, conversation, and a 
Spanish business course. She 
earned 9 credits during her short 

Macrides admitted that some 
previous trips to the country 

helped prepare her for her study. 
"I had 7 years of the language, 
so I was never at a loss. I didn't 
think I would have any problems, 
even though the family I stayed 
with didn't speak English. It 
becomes reflex — you don't think 
to talk in English," she said. "I 
spoke Spanish all the time. Many 
of the other Americans I met 
didn't — all they wanted to do 
was talk English and go to 

Although she encountered a bomb 
scare on Iberian Airlines on the 
way home, Mackrides recalls bet- 
ter portions of the trip abroad. 
"Classes ran until Friday each 
week, and on Fridays you could 

just jump on a bus and visit other 
places in Spain. And the 
American dollar went very far in 
paying for these 'jaunts,' " she 
noted. She explained that while 
the buses were not air conditioned 
and made you thirsty, the long 
rides lent time for study. 

The Good 

by Krista Bensinger 

This year's homecoming play, 
The Good Doctor, promises to be 
another LVC dramatic success. 
Written by Neil Simon, this two- 
act comedy is set in turn-of-the 
century Russia. The play consists 
of humorous skits drawn from 
Russian author Anton Chekov's 
short stories. Some of the skits in- 
clude a dental student tackling his 
first patient, a man who offers to 
drown himself for three rubles, 
and a wealthy matron attempting 
to outsmart her servants. 

The play centers around the 
narrator, who is portrayed as 
Anton Chekov. This part will be 
played by veteran actor Kevin 

The Good Doctor is presented 
by the Wig and Buckle Society 
and is directed by Tina Bakowski. 
The show is running for three 
nights, September 27, 28 and 29 
at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are regu 
larly $3.50. Sunday is student 
ticket night; students can pur- 
chase tickets at the door for 
$1.00. Be sure to come out and 
enjoy what promises to be a very 
entertaining evening.

Stocked with nine promising 
freshmen and six experienced 
seniors, including co-captains Jim 
Bryant, Scott Martin, and Scott 
Pontz, this year's soccer team 
offers a lot of potential. 

Despite a slow start, the team 
is gaining momentum with each 
outing. In their last game versus 
Kings College, they held a 1-0 
lead through most of the first half. 
The goal was scored by freshman 
Andy Potter. 

A strong defense, lead by 
senior goalie Tony Meyers, and 
a young, aggressive offense lead 
the way for a good game against 
Dickinson on Homecoming, their 
next home game. 

After losing disappointing 
meets to Gettysburg, both the 
men's and women's cross coun- 
try teams will attempt victory 
over Allentown in the Homecom- 
ing meet on Saturday. 

The women's field hockey 
team got its first victory as it 
defeated Eastern College by a 
score of 3-1. 

The team then lost close games 
to Gettysburg (2-0), F&M (2-0), 
and Messiah (3-0). 

The women will face Western 
Maryland at home on October 5.

This year LVC received an ex- 
citing new addition to the 
Chemistry Department with the 
arrival of Dr. Richard Cornelius, 
who replaces Dr. Neidig as head 
of the Chemistry Department. 

Dr. Cornelius, originally from 
Chicago, Illinois, arrives from 
Wichita State University, where 
he had taught for eight years. He 
brings an extensive background, 
not only in teaching, but in the 
use and development of computer 
software. Prior to his arrival at 
LVC, he spent a year and a half 
creating several computer pro- 
grams for chemistry students. 
The programs, developed in col- 
laboration with professors at the 
University of Nice, are unique in 
that they use actual pictorial 
demonstrations for many 
chemistry problems. 

Dr. Cornelius hopes to in- 
tegrate the use of computers more 
extensively into the chemistry 
program at Lebanon Valley. He 
believes "that it is more 
beneficial for students to actual- 
ly see the results of their work. ' ' 
He intends to use a large screen 
projection television so that entire 
classes can view programs at the 
same time. 

The widespread use of com- 
puters is just one of the goals that 
Dr. Cornelius has for the 
chemistry department. He also 
hopes to obtain more grants, in 
order to acquire the specific, up- 
to-date equipment which the 
department needs. At Wichita 
State, he was instrumental in 
bringing in over $400,000 worth 
of grants. He says, "I understand 
the strategy for getting grants. 
We have the expertise to get more 
than we have been." 

Another area which Dr. Cor- 
nelius hopes to develop is recruit- 
ment of chemistry students to the 
college. He says, "I hope to use 
the computer to make LVC's 
name known to high school 
students." He intends to write 
computer software and distribute 
it to high school teachers in order 
to let students know "that there's 
something special about Lebanon 
Valley." He states present 
departmental research alone "is 
not the type that attracts high 
school students." 

His goals also include 
recruiting high quality faculty to 
the college, using similar 
Dr. Cornelius also intends to 

make several changes in the 
chemistry department cur- 
riculum, primarily in terms of its 
focus. He wants to emphasize the 
more practical aspects of 
chemistry. "I think that after a 
student takes a chemistry course, 
she should be able to pick up a 
bottle in a grocery store and know 
what it means. I think that 
students ought to understand the 
reactions that occurred at Three 
Mile Island. They ought to ap- 
preciate what happens when 
drugs and alcohol enter the 
bloodstream," he states. He 
believes that, "too often we don't 
tie the principles of chemistry into 
everyday life." 

In addition to pursuing his 
many goals for the chemistry 
department, Dr. Cornelius will 
continue to write computer soft- 
ware on the side. His other in- 
terests include photography, 
bridge, tennis and unicycle 
riding. He has taken several trips 
abroad and recently participated 
in an underwater photography ex- 
pedition in the Caribbean. 
However, he says, "At present, 
I intend to devote most of my 
energy to my new job."

Visits LVC 

by Mark Scott 

Republican Presidential hope- 
ful Congressman Jack Kemp 
visited the LVC campus Thurs- 
day night, October 10. He ap- 
peared here to address the annual 
fundraising dinner of the 
Republican County Committee. 

Kemp is best known as an ad- 
vocate for the reforming and 
lowering of taxes. He co- 
sponsored both the Kemp-Kasten 
bill for tax cuts in 1981 and one 
of the original tax reform bills 
with Senator Roth of Delaware. 
Many of the components of this 
plan will probably be included in 
the final tax reform bill if and 
when it is eventually passed. 

In his speech, Kemp outlined 
his basic economic platform, 
which is known as the American 
Opportunity Society. Many con- 
servatives hope that this will 
eventually replace the current 
Liberal Welfare State thinking 
that has been in place since the 
New Deal of the '30's. 

Kemp is a member of the so- 
called Young Turks breed of new 
Republicans in his call for these 
ideas. He outlined his platform by 
citing the original platform of 
Lincoln when he founded the 
°OP. To Kemp, that platform 
was one of opportunity, freedom, 
c »vil rights, and new ideas. This 
!s Kemp's view today. He stated 
his belief that the Republican 
Party must become more broad- 
ly based by going back to these 
Jdeas. Kemp is a true populist 
conservative and believes that 
only by doing this and appealing 
all the people, can the 
Republican Party become the 

. The core concept to the Amer- 
ican Opportunity Society is the

economy, provided that 
to that growth are not im- 

posed by the government. Low 
taxes — no higher than 25 per- 
cent, a modified flat tax code, 
soundly backed currency, and 
low interest rates are necessary to 
this concept. To Kemp, this is not 
just for the rich, either, but all the 
people, regardless of race, sex, 
ethnic origins or religion. Equali- 
ty of economic opportunity for all 
is a basis of this idea. 

To demonstrate the specific 
planks of his program, Kemp 
used Japan as an example. There, 
he said, a couple can save up to 
the equivalent of $50,000 tax 
free. In the U.S., even with an 
IRA, the most you can keep tax 
free is $2000.00. Kemp claims 
that this robs people's incentive 

to save and invest in the 

Further, interest rates in Japan 
have stayed at about 5% since 
1949. Kemp stated that the reason 
that the economic recovery has 
not caught up with everyone is 
because interest rates are far too 
high, and should not be deter- 
mined simply by the whim of the 
Federal Reserve Chairman. He 
went on to say that 1985 was such 
a banner year for the auto 
industry because of the 7.7% 
factory financing that so many 
people took advantage of. High 
interest rates prevent people from 
buying, and slow down the

Dr. C. F. Joseph Tom, pro- 
fessor of Economics at LVC, 
visited his homeland of China this 
past summer. 

Accompanied by his wife and 
his son, Jonathon, Tom spent part 
of his time going to such exotic 
places as Hong Kong, Peking, 
Shanghai, and Canton. He saw 
such attractions as The Great 
Wall of China and the Forbidden 

Tom said, however, that his 
reasons for returning were not en- 
tirely for vacationing and 
pleasure. His purposes for going 
back were two-fold. One was to 
see the economic growth from six 
years ago (the last time he visited 
his homeland) to the present. The 
second reason was to visit his 
98-year-old father who lives in 

The economy of China has 
grown tremendously in six years, 
said Tom. The people of China 
now live under Socialist rule and 
are allowed much more freedom 
than they were even a few years 
ago. Tom believes that this 
amount of freedom directly con- 
tributes to the economic growth 
of the country. 

For example, six years ago the 
residents of China were not 
allowed to purchase goods in cer- 
tain stores. Only the tourists with 
foreign currency and passports 
were allowed to shop there. Tom 
said, "There were simply not 
enough goods to go around." To- 
day this is not so, added Tom. 
Their standard of living and 
economy is growing. To stress 
this improvement in the standard 
of living, Tom said that ten years 
ago every family wanted, for a 
sign of wealth: a wristwatch, a 
bicycle, and a radio. Their wants 
gradually increased to a watch 
and a television. More recently, 
they wanted a refrigerator and a 

washing machine, and most 
recently, a dishwasher and a 

This country is still very poor, 
however. Their per capita income 
is much less than that of the 
United States, said Tom, but their 
economy has grown drastically in 
the past six years. Tom noted that 
the Chinese measure their stan- 
dard of living today against their 
situation a few years ago. They 
do not compare their country with 

Part of China's problem, Tom 
believes, is their population. One 
billion people, one-quarter of the 
world's population, live in China. 
This population problem con- 
tributes to their low per capita 
income. There are just too many 
people, said Tom. "In order to 
increase the standard of living 
they (the Chinese) simply slow 
down the population growth," 
added Tom. 

To control the population, 
China began a policy of one child 
per family a few years ago. If this 
is violated, a lot of the benefits 
that the government provides a 
family are denied, salaries might 
be cut, and promotions might be 
denied — to discourage large 

Tom calls this policy a 
"necessity." "If you don't con- 
trol the population," he said, 
"any increase in production will 
be literally eaten up and no one 
will be able to improve." 

The Chinese government also 
began a program called "For 
Modernization." They instituted 
this program to modernize in- 
dustry, technology, and farming. 

The industry in China, Tom 
said, is still predominantly 
agriculture. Sixty to seventy per- 
cent of the population is engaged 
in farming. The government,

p. 2 THE QUAD Thursday, Oct. 17, 1985 



by Pete Johansson 

The United States is a superpower. That means we are one of the 
two most powerful military nations on the earth. Random acts of 
terrorism should, in theory, have little effect against us, but in 
reality we are the nation least prepared to handle terrorism, and the 
most susceptible to it. 

In the past few years many people have second-guessed President 
Reagan about how terrorism should be handled. There are lots of short 
range solutions, some of them military, some of them not, but all 
will be ineffectual in the long run if we fail to act on the causes behind 
international terrorism. We can expect more acts of terrorism than 
ever before, and from countries we don't consider, simply because 
of our standard of living. 

As a nation, we are overconsuming the world's resources. We are 
abundant in food, energy, housing, and other resources. It's true there 
are homeless and hungry in our own country, but it's not because 
we don't have enough. It is absolutely incomprehensible that our 

farmers are in financial crisis; they should be the richest men in the 
world. We are misusing and overconsuming resources that others 
might have. 

When people without, people in Africa, South America, India, Laos, 
Cambodia, Central America, and other parts of the world see this 
they are incensed. Who are we that we should live the way we do? 
When someone is hungry enough, is destitute enough, he will take, 
and in the world today, much of that taking is done through terrorism. 
We are reaching an age when we cannot expect those who have 
nothing to sit passively and allow us to overconsume. If it means 
terrorism and violence will get your family fed, that's what people 
will resort to. 

In no way does this justify terrorism, but when we act in such a 
way that that's the only way to get our attention, we can expect 
continued acts of terrorism in the future. We can no longer afford 
insensitivity to others in the world. We must realize what our 
standard of living is doing to others. 

Leadership II 

by Maria Montesano 

In the last issue of The Quad, (September 26, 1985), I addressed 
the question of what exactly is meant by all this "leadership" on 
campus. My editorial invited a response from whomever was willing 
to take the time to write one. And I did receive one — from LVC 
President Arthur Peterson. 

It is only fair that I share that response with you so to be fair to 
all parties involved. 

The following is an excerpt from President Peterson's letter: 
The concept of leadership is certainly not a simple one. I am 
enclosing a brief five-page ' 'budget of suggestions ' ' which I hope will 
be helpful to you as you think through your own preparation for 
leadership. In this brief attempt to respond to some of your concerns 
I try to indicate why I think there is an urgent, current need for leader- 
ship development, what some of the approaches to under- 
standing the concept are and how we might approach this awesome 
task here and now. 

Obviously, these thoughts are just the beginning in a process I hope 
will be deeply shared with you and your fellow students, faculty and 
staff, trustees and all members of our LVC family. 

I see leadership development as sterile if it is not strongly informed 
by and deeply infused with value considerations. Likewise, I agree 
with the recent statement of Frank Newman, president of the 
Education Commission of the States, that higher education (meaning 
you and me and all of your colleagues here at LVC) must find ways 
in which to link more effectively our educational programs to civic 
goals, — or what I have called Community. I urge you to read the 
Newman report (see the September 18, 1985 issues of the Chronical 
of Higher Education). You will see clearly what I have been 
emphasizing. . .during the past year and a half.

The "five-page 'budget of suggestions' " is available on campus 
and I suggest you read it yourself (along with the Newman report) 
to get a complete understanding of the matter. But for now, I will 
give you a brief outline of that "budget": 

A. Why leadership is needed. 

1 . "As a nation we are not producing the number or quality of 
leaders needed...." 

2. These leaders must respond to the ever changing environment 
and to do that effectively, must understand that environment. 

B. What leadership is. 

1 . This includes the qualities of leadership, types of leaders, skills 
of leaders and contexts underwhich leaders work. 

2. This also includes a comparison-contrast of leaders and 

C. How leadership is developed. 

This includes seven steps of development. 

From the outline then, I will agree that President Peterson has solid 
ideas in forming a basis for this leadership reform. What I see as the 
problem then is not that leadership is necessarily a bad idea. . .but in- 
stead, that it is not yet developed into a working plan; and still it has 
been marketed. That's like developing a new product for the 
marketplace and advertising it before it is ready to go. 

The real problem: We are still in the pre-stages of this product and 
yet are willing to let everyone believe it is ready to go. 

So, you're saying, "Maria, what are you getting at?" Well, I say, 
before I will try to pre-judge this leadership reform on the LVC 
campus again, I want to see a developed and ready-to-go product. . .but 
before LVC advertises it, I also want to see a developed and ready- 
to-go product. That's a fair deal... and I can be very patient. 


To the Editor: 

I am writing to take exception 
with Maria Montesano' s editorial 
in the last issue of The Quad. As 
someone in the leadership 
business, I feel that it is very 
important that we continue the 
emphasis on leadership here at 

While I certainly agree with her 
that leadership is at least 
partially inherited, I must insist 
that it is something which must be 
developed more. As Dr. Peterson 
has stated in introducing the pro- 
gram, it may well be that the 
political and social crises that 
have plagued us in recent years 
are in fact due to a lack of leader- 

ship nationally. 

I do, however have one com- 
plaint with the current program. 
That is, the lack of any emphasis 
on the development of leadership 
among current undergraduate 
students, and the lack of recogni- 
tion so many have faced who are 
excelling in leadership already. 
There is clearly a need for 
L.V.C. to start recognizing more 
the achievements of its own while 
at the same time recruiting 
leaders and offering scholarships 
for incoming students. 

Sincerely yours, 
Mark E. Scott, 
Chairman, College 
of Pennsylvania

For 13 years now, officially, 
and for about 20 years unofficial- 
ly, United States defense policy 
has been mad. More specifical- 
ly, it has been MAD. MAD 
stands for Mutually Assured 
Destruction. What this means in 
layman's terms is the nuclear 
balance of power, or as Winston 
Churchill put it, the "balance of 

What this means in most prac- 
tical terms is that both the U.S. 
and the U.S.S.R. know that if one 
'nukes' the other, that it is going 
to be nuked back. This idea is 
why so many live in fear of 
nuclear holocaust and the destruc- 
tion of the world as we know it. 

As part of this strategy, each 
superpower is to leave its popula- 
tion vulnerable and without true 
civil defense. Since the 1973 
Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty 
which made this doctrine official, 
we are not to attempt to defend 
our population. 

that the Soviet Union has violated 
the treaty in both Moscow and 
Siberia by installing and re- 
searching such defense systems is 
beside the point. It is STUPID to 
leave the U.S. population de- 
fenseless in a nuclear war. The 
President and the U.S. recognizes 
that nuclear war is unwinnable 
and must never be. However, 
many, including myself, have 
questions as to the Soviet view of 
this. It is very possible, that given 
Soviet nuclear strategy, they may 
believe that with their current 
missile system, they can wipe out 
our retailiatory forces to the ex- 
tent that their losses would be 

Their definition of acceptable is 
VERY dangerous. History has 
not been kind to the Soviets. 
Wars have from time to time 
decimated their population, yet 
they survived. World War II, the 
Great Patriotic War, as they call 
it, destroyed large portions of 
their country and a sizable 
percentage of their population, 
both military and civilian. How 
do we compare? I don't know the 
actual figures of our losses in 
World War II, but we certainly 
haven't been invaded by anyone 
since 1812, and our population 
and property, except in the Civu 
War, has never been severely 

So what should be done about 
it? Well, in 1983, the President 
proposed a new kind of strategy

called the Strategic Defense 
Initiative. NO, I refuse to call it 
Star Wars. If anything, SDI is 
"Star War Prevention." 

The idea of SDI is for the U.S. 
to build a satellite umbrella which 
would have the potential of 
wiping out at least a sizable por- 
tion of incoming Soviet warheads 
before they reenter the atmos- 
phere. Eventually lasers and par- 
ticle beam generators are hoped 
to be able to vaporize warheads. 
This is why this progam is at 
present mostly a research and 
development program. 

However, certain kinds of 
technology exist now which can 
do much the same thing. The 
simplest idea is called a "smart 
bullet." This smart bullet is a 
computer guided projectile that 
will be fired from satellites at the 
missiles and/or warheads. 

SDI, though, has not had an 
easy time. Liberals have already 
taken up the wail that it will 
needlessly militarize space. Skep- 
tics have claimed it will not ade- 
quately defend. However the 
principle is what I'm arguing for 

The Soviets, for sure, have 
been most upset about SDI. They 
want a total ban on testing and 
development of it in exchange for 
a new arms control treaty EVEN 

Why, do you ask? Simple: 
because they know that we will 
always beat them at the technol- 
ogy game. This is because here 
in the U.S. , capitalism offers the 
incentive of monetary reward. 
Certainly dachas and privileges 
that the Soviet populace would 
never get are offered, but the lack 
of profit motive in the Soviet 
Union really makes a difference. 

My whole point in this column 
is this: SDI must be carried 
through. If we have the choice of 
spending billions on missiles that 
kill people or SDI satellite 
systems that kill missiles instead, 
what is the logical choice? Ob- 
viously, SDI. No, you tell me; 
neither give it to the needy. But 
we won't have any needy to give 
money to if we don't have ade- 
quate defense, and adequate 
means at least parity of forces as 
a deterrant or a true defensive 
capability against the Soviet 

The President is meeting with 
Soviet leader Gorbachev shortly. 
Meanwhile, the negotiations at 
Geneva are going on. The Soviets 
w ant SDI as a bargaining chip in 
exchange for a treaty. WE MUST 
N OT SELL SDI. The Soviets 
have violated every treaty we 
have made with them. To sell SDI 
' 0r a treaty would be to give it 
away for nothing. There is so

Anyone who has seen Agnes of God is going to tell you what a 
magnificent picture it is, as will any review you read. The trick is 
to figure out why this movie is memorable, and the best this minor 
league reviewer can do is tell you that some first-rate acting, 
competent direction, and a skillfully crafted script coincide in one 
film. If any of these three areas failed, Agnes of God would be 
simply good; what the three amount to is remarkable. 

Meg Tilly plays Agnes, a nun in a Canadian convent who one night 
gives birth to a child. No one in the convent was aware that Agnes 
was pregnant, and she is discovered unconcious, the baby strangled 
to death in a waste basket. Agnes has no memory of the birth, or 
of the conception. In fact, Agnes has no knowledge at all of sex or 
childbirth. Her own explanation for her "illness" the night of the 
birth is that one of the nuns had put glass in her dinner. 

Jane Fonda is the court psychiatrist brought in to determine whether 
Agnes is fit to stand trial, and Anne Bancroft plays the Mother Superior 
of the convent. Whatever you think of Jane Fonda, it is a mistake 
to discount her acting ability, which in this film is superior. Anne 
Bancroft is as strong as ever, and the two complement each other 
well. It is impossible to explain what has happened to Agnes solely 
on scientific evidence, as well as it is impossible to ascribe religion 
to her condition. Both actresses know this, and the internal struggles 
of their characters with science and faith are brougth out con- 
vincingly in scenes of the two together. 

Meg Tilly, as Agnes, is astounding. Partially through the script and 
partially through Tilly's interpretation, the same questions that face

Forget everything you know about Arnold Schwarzenegger. Forget 
Conan. Forget The Terminator. Arnold is out of his Mr.-Nice-Guy- 
Alan-Alda-New- York-Intellectual stage. Arnold is ready to bruise. 

Arnold used to be the leader of a crack commando team. One of 
the guys he kicked off his team for having a bad attitude kidnaps 
Arnold's daughter and tells Arnold he has to kill a Bulgarian politico 
so some Communist can take over. He sends two guys with Arnold 
to make sure Arnold gets on the plane. Guess what happens to two 
guys. Guess what Arnold spends the rest of the movie doing. 

There is a subtle character change in Arnold, and that is that he 
loses all subtlety. Gone is the introspective, tender Arnold in films 
such as The Terminator. Let's say you're pointing a rifle at Arnold. 
Arnold rips the rifle out of your hands, and you'd better hope he's 
going to shoot you with it. Arnold needs to get some guy out of a 
phone booth. Old wimpy Arnold would have smashed through the 
door to get to him. New improved Arnold rips the phone booth out 
of the ground and flips it over his head. Joe Bad Guy in the phone 
booth understands that Arnold means business. 

I know what you're thinking; that you have to suspend reality when 
you go to a movie like this. No way. Arnold can do all these things, 
because that's the kind of guy Arnold is. So whether Arnold's 
, ripping a seat out of a car with his bare hands, or taking out some pesky 
Rent-A-Cops, you know that you're looking at realism in American 

So check out Commando, and watch Arnold rock'n'roll. You'll be 
glad you did. _____ 

much promise in this system. We 
must keep the program alive both 
at the arms control table and in 
the halls of Congress. No other 
defensive or offensive program 
even has the chance of making 
nuclear weapons, and the threat 
of their use, obsolete. This is a 
reachable goal, and one which 
must be strived towards. Let's 
end nuclear MADness NOW!

the characters face the audience. Certainly Agnes is innocent, but we 
must question the nature of her innocence. Is her innocence ignorance 
or blamelessness? Is her innocence a result of heavenly purity or 
negligent upbringing? How childlike is her innocence? Underlying 
all these questions, is Agnes innocent in the eyes of the law? Tilly's 
performace evades the simple answers to these questions and creates 
a complex, disturbing character. 

Director Norm Jewison keeps the film under control, bringing these 
questions to reality. Stripped to its bare plot, the movie is a thriller, 
a murder mystery, and Jewison never forgets this as events sur- 
rounding Agnes unravel. Slowly, yet exhaustively, Jewison picks apart 
the characters, as well as the physical setting of the convent. A 
convent is secluded, private, yet through the film we discover there 
are no places to hide. Without coming off as intrusive, Jewison brings 
the camera into every corner of the convent and its inhabitants. 

The script handles the characters sensitively without letting them 
off the hook. As the questions develop, the script points to a larger 
problem: that of its title. Is Agnes truly of God? If so, why and how? 
Has she been born a saint, or has God somehow touched the life of 
an ordinary girl? As the psychologist struggles for a psychological 
answer, and the Mother clings to a hope for miracles and saints in 
a modern world, the audience tries to uncloud the mystery. 

Agnes of God is certainly bound for Academy Awards, and it 
is the best picture I've seen in years. You owe itself to yourself to 
see it, and talk about it afterwards. At one level it's a good mystery. 
At another level, it brings real situations to important "academic" 


Manilow Brings 
Tour To Hershey 

by Lorraine Englert 

Barry Manilow's Copacabana Tour 1985 opened to a sell-out crowd 
at Hershey Arena Sunday night. Enthusiasm for Barry has not 
diminished since his appearance in the area approximately 3 years 
ago when select LVC students served as his back-up singers. 

The concert blended his various styles with marvelous effectiveness. 
Old favorites included: / Can 't Smile Without You; Mandy and / Write 
The Songs. Other crowd favorites were: When October Goes and 
Weekend in New England. 

Spectators were treated to a visit to the Copacabana to meet Tony 
the Bartender. Another stop was The Paradise Cafe. 

Many elements combined to create a performance which had both 
visual and auditory impact. A deceptively simple set was trans- 
formed through skillful lighting into a city skyline or merely a mix 
of color to fit the mood of a song. Instrumentation ranged from a 
synthesizer to strings. 

One thing that did not vary was Manilow's showmanship. Although 
he appeared in everything from a tuxedo to a casual outfit and 
sneakers, Manilow provided consistent entertainment interspersing 
songs with jokes as well as casual comments. 

Manilow did not hesitate to mention his newest endeavor which 
is a TV movie. The film is based on the song Copacabana. Fans were 
treated to a clip from the show, which will air on Dec. 17 on CBS.

Schaefer Addresses 
LVC Community 

by Susan Maruska 

"I did it in the same way you 
meet any challenge in life: I had 
the reasons, desires and faith. If 
you have these, you would have 
been able to go through it, too. " 
This was the way Col. Thomas E. 
Schaefer, USAF retired, endured 
his 444 days as an Iranian 

Schaefer spoke Monday 
(Oct. 7) in the Chapel lecture 
hall to approximately 100 
students and faculty. 

According to Chaplain Smith, 
he got to know Schaefer over the 
telephone when a student, 
Gholamreza Norouzi, was at 
LVC. Norouzi was the son of 
Schaefer' s driver and came to the 
United States soon after the 
fighting broke out in Iran. 

At the time, Schaefer 's niece, 
Susan Schaefer, also attended 
LVC. Her father, a minister in 
Reading, brought Norouzi to 
Chaplain Smith and asked him if 
he would help. Norouzi stayed 
here about two years until he 
decided he wanted to study 
architecture. Now he is at 
the University of Southwest 
Louisiana in Monroe. 

Smith said he had never met 
Schaefer in person before 
Schaefer gave his lecture. Smith 
said Schaefer wanted to repay the 
college in some way, so he 
called last year and wanted to 
speak. Smith's budget was 
already spent when Schaefer 
called, so he had to wait. 
Schaefer called earlier this year 
and said he would be in the area 
again and wanted to speak. This 
time he got his wish. 

Schaefer said a typical day 
began by praying for strength for 
the next 24 hours, then exercis- 
ing, reading, walking around his 
room and daydreaming about his 

Faith was one of the main 
things that kept Schaefer going. 
He never lost faith in his country, 
his family, or himself. He said he 
kept thinking about meeting his 
grandchildren at the airport when 
he returned home. "I wanted to 
tell them, 'Hey, you can be 
proud of me. I did well,' " he 

Schaefer said another important 
part of his life was humor: "You 
don't have to be a comedian, but 
be cheerful. Humor cuts through 
the stress." 

He also praised President 
Jimmy Carter for his actions 
during the hostage crisis. "Carter 
displayed patience, maturity, 
courage, and the dignity you 
would expect of a president of the 
United States," Schaefer 

During his days in captivity, 
Schaefer had plenty of free time. 
He put this time to use by reading 

over 200 books. He also taught 
himself the German language. 
But after their release, the 
hostages were sent to the military 
hospital in West Germany. "I 
found there was one major flaw: 
no one understood my German. 
I had no instructor and no tapes," 
he said. 

Schaefer also exercised for 
about four hours a day and ' 'came 
back in better shape physically 
than I had been for 25 years." 

Also on his agenda was sing- 
ing. "I did a lot of singing, most- 
ly hymns and college songs," he 
said. After their release, other 
hostages told him that they were 
inspired by his singing. 

Schaefer kept a diary. He first 
tried to write one, but it was con- 
fiscated by his captors. So, he 
would punch pin holed over 
certain letters in his bible to keep 
account of his experiences. 

Schaefer concluded his talk by 
reading a poem: 


Outside my window, a new day I see 

and only I can determine 
what kind of day it will be. 
It can be busy and sunny, laughing and gay, 
or boring and cold, unhappy and grey. 
My own state of mind is the determining key, 

for I am only the person I let myself be. 
I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help, 

or be selfish and think just of myself. 
I can enjoy what I do and make it seem fun, 
or gripe and complain and make it 

hard on someone. 
I can be patient with those who may 

not understand, 
or belittle and hurt them as much as I can. 
But I have faith in myself, 

and believe what I say, 

and I personally intend to make 

the best of each day.

however, encourages technologi- 
cal development and promotes 
trade and commerce. But, many 
of the villagers do not want to 
modernize, he said. They are 
"set in their ways," following 
old traditions rather than these 
new innovations. 

The cities, in contrast, are 
becoming very modern and in- 
dustrialized, said Tom. You can- 
not distinguish a city like 
Shanghai or Peking from London 
or New York. It is obvious that 
their standard of living is improv- 
ing. The people here are less set 
in their ways and are more easily 
adapting to the government policy 
of modernization, he added. 

When talking about the educa- 
tional system of China, Tom said 
their high school curriculum is 
"much more rigorous than that of 
the United States." But unlike 
here, only the best students can 
go to high school. There are not 
enough facilities available to 
allow everyone to attend. 
"Education is considered the 
most precious commodity in 
China," Tom said. School is a 
very important aspect of life. 

Tom came to the United States 
after completing high school in 
China. He began his college 
career in 1939 at San Francisco 
Junior College. Many of the 
students there were Chinese 

speaking, said Tom, and outside 
of class, he did not use much 

After two years in San Fran- 
cisco, he went to Hastings Col- 
lege in Nebraska. Tom was the 
only Chinese person there. He 
said he had some diffficulty with 
the English language. He said his 
studying at Hastings consisted of 
"the textbook on one hand and 
the dictionary on the other." For 
the purpose of survival, Tom had 
to learn English. 

Tom came to LVC in 1954 
after teaching at Beloit Collge in 
Wisconsin. He had several 
opportunities elsewhere, but he 
wished to move to the East coast. 
Also, he chose LVC because he 
likes the "small liberal arts en- 
vironment in a college town at- 
mosphere. ' ' He also likes the fact 
that Annville is close to large 
cities such as Philadelphia, 
Washington, and New York, 
where he can go to take advan- 
tage of their cultural activities. 

After teaching at LVC, he 
returned to college once again to 
obtain his PhD in economics from 
the University of Chicago. 

Next to William Fairlamb of 
the Music Department, Tom is 
the faculty member with the most 
seniority . Tom has been at LVC 
for 32 years and says that he likes 
teaching at LVC "very much."

New Phone System 
On Line At LVC 

byD.R. Williams 

With the beginning of a new 
academic year comes a new elec- 
tronic telephone system which 
has been in the installation pro- 
cess since early this year. 

The new Northern Telecom 
system has been in the prepara- 
tion and installation stages for 
several years. Trenching for 
cable and conduit was completed 
several years ago. This trenching 
greatly reduced mileage costs 
which led to Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege 's recognition in the Nacubo 
Cost Reduction Incentive Awards 
Program, according to Richard 
Riley, Controller of the College. 

Beginning in early 1985, Red 
Rose Systems and Denver and 
Ephrata Telegraph and Telephone 
Company, the low bidders of the 
project, began the actual installa- 
tion process. The College cut 
over to the new, electronic 
system in early June. At that time 
the College received a new 
telephone number — 867-6100, 
along with numbers for each 
phone line. The new system cost 
approximately $200,000. 

"The primary advantage of the 
phone system is inward dialing," 
said Walt Smith, Director of 
Special Services. Rather than 
dialing the College number and 
having the operator connect the 
caller to the appropriate exten- 
sion, now it is possible to dial 
directly to the desired office. For 
example, to call the College 
Center, the caller would dial 

According to Riley, "There is 
no bottleneck at the switchboard. 
This system is more efficient, ef- 
fective, and economical. With 
this system, the College can 
determine the degree of use by 
each office." 

Additionally, long distance 
routing is improved, alleviating 
tie-ups at the College switch- 
board. Smith said, "Those per- 
sons appointed by the College 
have been given special numbers 
in which they can make long 
distance calls without the 
help of the LVC operator." 

The English and Foreign 
Language Houses are not con- 
nected to the new system 
however. The Building and 
Grounds Committee of the Board 
of Trustees felt that if those two 
departments would move to other 
campus locations in the future, 
then finances would have been 
spent in vain. 

When the phones ring on cam- 
pus, the rings are not traditional 
bellsounds, but rather a beeping 
sound. This is because the 
telephones are electronic. Added 
features of the system include 
ring again, call forwarding, con- 
ference calling, and transfer 

The system is designed for 
future expansion, according to 
Riley and Smith. The switching 
gear is large enough so that it can 
be added to. Data could be fed 
through the phone lines via com- 
puter. Also, individual dorm 
rooms could have phones. 
"Because of the cost, this could 
not be done in the first sweep," 
said Riley. 

Riley and Smith agree that 
there have been good results with 
the system. Needs of the offices 
are being met through the ser- 
vices which the system offers. 
Minor problems resulted during 
cut over. "The cooperation of 
faculty and staff has been excep- 
tional," said Smith.

Science Center's Mortgage 
To Be Paid Off Early 

by Christopher Craig 

Dr. Arthur Peterson, president 
of Lebanon Valley College, 
recently announced that the last 
payments on the Garber Science 
Center would be made in Febru- 
ary, two years ahead of schedule. 

The payments for the Garber 
Science Center came as a result 
of an intensive campaign to raise 
over 10 million dollars for the 
center. The planning for the 
center began in the 1970's with 
a vision to create a place for 
students, interested in the 
sciences, to pursue their studies. 
The Center would provide 
students with the modern equip- 
ment and material needed to ex- 
cell in the field of science. 

Dr. Peterson reported that the 
10 million dollars raised would 
enable the administration to pay 
the loan two years earlier than ex- 
pected. The cost of the building 
and maintenance would be about 

6 million dollars with the remain- 
ing 4 million dollars to go into an 
endownment for the college. 

The campaign to repay the loan 
was concentrated toward area 
businesses, alumni groups, and 
the Lebanon Valley Community. 
Individuals and business con- 
tributions, such as Dr. Garber 
and The Whitaker Foundation 
enable the Garber building to be 
built and equipped with modern 
tools, like the million dollar 
electron microscope. 

It goes without saying that Dr. 
Peterson was pleased to make the 
announcement to repay the loan, 
and that he is "delighted that the 
generosity of individuals and 
businesses that enabled the school 
to pay the loan two years early. ' ' 
Dr. Peterson went on to assert 
that "this repayment reflects the 
great financial soundness of 
Lebanon Valley College."

fighters around the world and we 
must make a contribution to the 
world by aiding them. 

He closed by stating his belief 
that "the purpose of government 
is to create an environment 
whereby the people can, accor- 
ding to their own value systems, 
work out and pursue their own 
happiness." This is what the 
founders of the U.S. intended, 
and this is what we must be 
striving for. 

Kemp's ability as a speaker in 
articulating his points of view was 
masterful. If he does indeed run 
for President in 1988, as is like- 
ly, he will certainly be someone 
to watch. Already he is being 
compared with Gary Hart and 
John F. Kennedy. Also, his belief 
in opportunity and populist con- 
servatism might mean a new 
Republican Party which may 
indeed succeed in the realignment 
that so many are seeking.

Lebanon Valley College has 
begun a four-fold leadership pro- 
gram that President Arthur Peter- 
son hopes will make the college 
the "Leadership College of 
America." The total program ad- 
dresses leadership at four levels: 
high school, undergraduate, mid- 
dle management, and senior 

In the high school program, 
one-day workshops are held for 
high school students to improve 
their leadership abilities. Dr. Kip 
Bollinger is in charge of this pro- 
gram, which is already under 

A form of the undergraduate 
program is already in place. For 
the next few weeks, all freshmen 
will be learning about the dif- 
ferent forms of leadership in the 
career world. There are a total of 
seven seminars which will in- 
volve guest speakers, critiques, 
experiential elements, and self- 
evaluations. According to Dean 
George Marquette, the reason for 
these seminars is to "heighten 
awareness as to what qualities ef- 
fective leaders possess." Seminar 
topics include Time Manage- 
ment, Self Assessment, Decision 
Making, and Academics. Semin- 
ar leaders include Dean Mar- 
quette, Dean Rosemary Yuhas, 
Chaplain John Smith and David 
Evans, Director of Career Plan- 
ning and Placement. 

In addition, Professor Warren 
Thompson is chairing a Leader- 
ship Steering Committee that will 
further examine the role of 
leadership in academic life. Other 
members of the committee are 
Dr. James Broussard, Chairman 
of the Department of History and 
Political Science, Dr. Bollinger, 
Dr. Carolyn Hanes, and Dean 

The third level of the program 
addresses leadership in middle 
management. These are inten- 
sive, five-day seminars held for 
people in middle management 
from all over central Penn- 
sylvania. Dr. Howard Applegate, 
Dean of Continuing Education is 
running the seminars for middle 

The fourth level addresses 
leadership at the Chief Executive 
Officer (CEO) level. A seminar 
planned for November 22 will 
feature Gen. George Miller, 
former Commander of Strategic 
Air Command, and presently the 
Chairman of the Olympic 

The idea for the sudden jump 
into a leadership format can be at- 
tributed to President Peterson.

behind the program," com- 
mented Dean Marquette. "We

LVC Faces Choice 

by Christopher Craig 

The Building and Grounds 
Committee of LVC is currently 
discussing the possibility of refur- 
bishing the present athletic 
center, or constructing an en- 
tirely new building. The athletic 
center, which is currently in the 
very early stages of planning, 
would provide LV students with 
modern facilities and a better 
athletic atmosphere, than the 
out-dated Lynch Memorial 

The committee in charge of 
planning the center's develop- 
ment met last Thursday, October 
10, and reviewed a list of sug- 
gestions of improvements that 
were submitted by the Athletic 
Committee. These suggestions 
ranged from re-leveling the prac- 
tice fields, to constructing a new 
building that would house an in- 
door pool and an indoor track. 
But as President Peterson con- 
tinually stressed, "the planning is 
in the very early stages and 
presently little is known to be 

The process of establishing an 
athletic center is long and dif- 
ficult. There are three different 
committees of the School Board 

that are involved in the decision- 
making process. 

The principal committee is the 
Buildings and Grounds Commit- 
tee. They make the initial report 
and decision concerning what is 
needed and what should be con- 

The Finance Committee is the 
second in the process. They make 
financial recommendations and 
find feasible ways of funding the 
construction. Later this fall they 
will be submitting a feasibility 
report to the Executive Commit- 
tee concerning the ability to fund 
a new athletic center. 

The Executive Committee is 
responsible for making decisions 
and further recommendations on 
the building. The final decision 
rests on the School Board and 
they do not meet until November. 

Dr. Leon Markowicz, member 
of the Building and Grounds 
Committee, said, "It is all a mat- 
ter of money." The decision of 
what to build and when to do it 
all rests on the financial burden 
it puts on the College. Several 
possibilities are being looked in- 
to at the moment.

of the Philadelphia Eagles, has

The Flying Dutchmen have lost 
their last three football games at 
the hands of Moravian, Upsala, 
and Farleigh-Dickinson to drop 
their record to 0-6 overall. 

The highlights of the 50-15 
Moravian loss were touchdown 
strikes of 51 yards and 39 yards, 
from quarterback Kevin Peters to 
Jim Reilly and Cliff Harro. Tony 
Porrino booted a 37-yard field 
goal for an early LV lead, but it 
wasn't enough as the Greyhounds 
pulled away. 

Against Upsala, the Dutchmen 
fell behind 27-0, but closed the 
margin to 33-13 by the game's 
final buzzer. Tight end Ted 
Brosius was on the receiving end 
of both fourth-quarter touchdown 

In Madison, N.J., nine 
Dutchmen turnovers resulted in a 
21-8 loss to Farleigh-Dickinson. 
Two of the turnovers occurred in- 
side the FDU 10-yard line. LV's 
lone touchdown came on a 

15-yard pass from Peters to 

Harro in the fourth quarter. 

The LV defense has been lead 
by Greg ' 'Spike' ' Hessinger, who 
tops the team in tackles, and 
defensive end Karl Conrad, who 
leads the squad in sacks. The 
secondary is headed by Paul 
Walsh with two interceptions and 
safety Neil Taylor. 

Freshman running back Todd 
Grill is leading the LV backs in 
rushing, and freshman Brian 
Sultzbach did a fine job at 
quarterback before being side- 
lined by an injury. The kicking 
game has been excellent, with 
Porrino averaging nearly 34 
yards a punt. 

The coaching staff has been 
trying some new innovative 
ideas, some of which include a 
halfback pass, a reverse, and a 
fake punt. With some of these 
plays and some hope, the 
Dutchmen may come up with a 
victory this Saturday as they 
travel to Reading to play 


The women's hockey team hit 
two bright spots in its season as 
the squad crushed Dickinson 7-4 
last Thursday and tied Western 
Maryland 2-2 in double overtime 
on October 5. 

Dicksie Boehler recorded a hat 
trick as she scored three times 
against Dickinson. Glenda 

Shetter scored on a penalty 
stroke, while Laurie Kamann, 
Missy Moyer, and Patty Moll 
each netted one. 

Boehler and Rochelle Zimmer- 
man scored in the Western 
Maryland game.

been on the phone with President 
Peterson to discuss the possibili- 
ty of the Eagles moving their 
summer camp from West Chester 
University to LVC. This would 
enable the college to gain much 
assistance in refurbishing our 
athletic facilities. Something like 
this was done at Dickinson Col- 
lege by the Washington Redskins. 
Again, Dr. Peterson said that this 
is only a possibility and very 

Another possibility is having an 
athletic corporation come in and 
install new facilities and use 
Lebanon Valley as a model for 
future projects. Markowicz said 
this was too early to come to any 
real conclusion on the probabili- 
ty of this happening. If such an 
operation would be undertaken, 
the process of building and 
funding would be similar to what 
was done with the Garber Science 

The building of any new 
athletic facilities is far in the 
future; and the who, when, 
where, and how can not be 
answered at this time. As Presi- 
dent Peterson pointed out, "I do 
not want to get anyone's hopes up 
at this time."

After the LVC men's cross 
country team beat Muhlenberg on 
October 5, the team went on to 
add two more wins to their almost 
perfect season record last Satur- 
day at Johns Hopkins. 

The men beat Ursinus 25-34 
and Johns Hopkins 24-31. 

John Hibshman placed second 
overall with a time of 27:56, 
only six seconds behind the lead 

Placing second for the Dutch- 
men was Mike Lieb (28:09). 

Ed Slagle finished third for LV 
and sixth overall (29:18). 

Andy Hamann and Mike Royer 
finished fourth and fifth with 
times of 31:07 and 33:26, 

All the runners had improved 
times, but only Brian Miller 
recorded his best time for the year 
at Hopkins. 

The women's team beat 
Ursinus 25-30 and lost to Johns 
Hopkins 46-16. 

Cindy Sladek finished sixth 
overall and first for LV with a 
personal best of 20:38. 

Tracy Wenger, ninth overall, 
finished second for the women 

Sue Yingst (21:50), Steph 
Butter (22:16) and Laurie Mutz 
(23:14) finished third, fourth, and 
fifth respectively. All three 
recorded season best times.

The LVC soccer team has 
come close in their quest to snap 
their losing streak, including a 
tough 4-0 loss to Dickinson, 
which was tied 0-0 at the half. 
The team has played inspiringly 
at times, lead by seniors Erik 
Enters, Scott Martin, and Scott 
Pontz; but a lack of shots on goal 
hurts and then the defense breaks 

Other than Dickinson, the 
Dutchmen have lost to Allentown 

2-0, Gettysburg 13-1, Ursinus 
7-0, and York 5-1. The goal 
against Gettysburg was scored by 
freshman Eric Rabenold at the 
start of the second half, which 
made the score 3-1 . Only then did 
Gettysburg pull away. The other 
goal came against York. This 
goal tied the game at the half, 1-1 , 
and was scored by Glen "Bug" 

The team will strive to break 
their streak in the upcoming week 
against F&M and Widener.

Courses Added to Curriculum 

by Christopher Craig 

Since Dr. Arthur Peterson has 
entered the office of the president 
at Lebanon Valley College he has 
taken numerous steps to imple- 
ment a leadership program in the 
college. Since its creation, the 
Leadership Steering Committee 
has met every week since the first 
week of the fall semester to 
develop an atmosphere for "A 
Leadership College." 

The Steering Committee has 
recently formulated a proposal to 
establish two additional courses 
designed to address the issues of 
leadership in America. Dr. War- 
ren Thompson, chairman of the 
leadership committee, recently 
described the two classes as an at- 
tempt to educate students to bet- 
ter appreciate the qualities of 
good leadership and to utilize 
these qualities in their own 
decision making. 

In their meeting two weeks 
ago, the Steering Committee 

developed the basic outline for 
two new courses that specifical- 
ly deal with the question of pro- 
per leadership. The current "new 
student" leadership seminars 
would serve as a foundation for 
the continuing courses. The first 
courses would be a basic iden- 
tification of leadership. It would 
provide the student with specific 
qualities in good leaders and how 
they make effective decisions. 
Dr. Thompson asserted that John 
Kenneth Gailbraith's book, 
Anatomy of Power, and Burn's 
book, Leadership would be prime 
examples of the type of topics the 
course would cover. Other 
famous works such as Mien 
Kampf and The Prince would be 
further examples of past attempts 
to assert leadership ideals. The 
purpose of this course would be 
to give the student a better 
understanding of the qualities that 
make a good and effective leader. 

The second course, an exten- 
sion of the first, would give the 
student a better idea how leaders 
act in certain situations, and how 
they make effective decisions. In- 
volved in this course would be 
some sort of internship program 
in the immediate area. This in- 
ternship program would enable 
the student to continue his normal 
course load at the college while 
doing work in the college com- 
munity or surrounding area. Dr. 
Broussard, a member of the 
Steering Committee, mentioned a 
lab assistant as an example of an 
internship job. He maintained the 
job would have to enable the stu- 
dent to have some degree of 
responsibility and to manage 
other workers. 

Additional courses, already 
present in the academic program, 
such as ethical leadership and 
managerial skills would be incor-

Parents' Weekend Succeeds 

by Krista Bensinger 

Parents' Weekend 1985 
Proved to be an LVC success. 
Centered around a Halloween 
theme, it offered a variety of 
activities ranging from a haunted 
house and masquerade dinner to 
a football game and student 
v audeville. 

Parents started to arrive on 
campus Friday night and the 
activities continued for them 
through Sunday afternoon. Some 
stayed nearby at local motels for 
the weekend. 

The French Club sponsored a 
haunted house in the Foreign 
Language building on Friday 
^ght. Organized by freshman 
P'adine Saada, the club trans- 
ited the building (including 

r - Page's office) into a horror 

Friday night also offered a laser 
light show and a Halloween party 
in the Underground. Some stu- 
dents danced to their favorite 
music dressed up as witches, 
ghosts, and various other 

Most parents arrived on cam- 
pus on Saturday. Lunch was open 
to parents and students on the 
quad. Junior Laurie Bender said 
that it was a nice change having 
lunch outside. Many students and 
parents alike enjoyed their 
"picnic" lunch before going to 
the afternoon football game. 

Other activities Saturday 
evening included the Halloween 
Masquerade Dinner Dance, a 
magic show, and "Make Your 
Own Sundae." 

Many students commented on 
the success of "Make Your Own 

Sundae." Junior Jami Jennings 
said that it was a good activity and 
LVC should have it more often. 
Many parents and students 
turned out for it. 

By Sunday, fewer and fewer 
parents appeared on campus. 
Some, however, remained for the 
ever- popular LVC brunch. Other 
activities on Sunday included an 
Ecumenical Worship Service, 
and the weekend movie, Gone 
With the Wind. Also, student 
musicians and actors performed 
vaudeville which proved to be a 
good theatrical show. 

The LVC Student Council 
organized this year's Parent's 
Weekend. The activities, based 
on a Halloween theme, were 
varied and held something for

Writing Center 
Open to All 

by Lisa Camburn 

The purpose of the Student 
Writing Center is to provide any 
writer with any kind of assistance 
they need in the writing process. 
It integrates service in the way 
writers need to go about writing, 
and also ties in with the way 
students are taught in the 
freshman class. 

The Writing Center is taught by 
tutors who are mostly English 
majors. Dr. Markowicz is the ad- 
visor of the Writing Center and 
he said, "Most of the tutors have 
been in my class, but I also check 
out the English Department for 
other excellent writers. We need 
good writers who can com- 
municate their understanding to 
others and can get out of the 
writer a response. They don't just 
sit down and write something for 
others — they help and show the 
writer how to do it for himself." 

"I spent four weeks at Penn 
Writing Project in West Chester 
University, and I pass on to the 
students what I've learned. I put 
them through what I went through 
and highlight what I was taught. 
We meet at least once a week to 
review student writing and get 
other instructors to come in and 
train the tutors." 

Writing is a process that can in- 
volve different steps. It doesn't 
have to include all of the steps, 
but there are some steps that all 
writers use. The writing process 
consists of these steps: 
prewriting, drafting, responsing 
(using the "response techni- 
que"), editing, proofreading, 
publishing (letting the reader read 
it). The tutors are trained to look 
at the major steps. They ask the 
students how they want them to 
look at it, using any of thse steps.

LVC Apathy 

by Pete Johansson 

When I started writing editorials last year, I swore I would never 
write one on student apathy. You see these kinds of editorials all the 
time in high school, college, and even professional newspapers, and 
usually they're sappy calls to arms that never get anything 
accomplished. I'll tell you right now that I don't expect much from 
this editorial but apathy on campus right now is so downright 
unbelievable that I'm breaking my own policy. 

What is wrong with you people? Smell the coffee folks, you're in 
the middle of a tiny college. I'm not going to try to tell you what 
you can do for the school (a lot, by the way); I think the best way 
to go about this is an appeal to self interest and greed. 

When you graduate from here, prospective graduate schools and 
employers are going to look at your record. Let's say you have a 
4.0 GPA. Big deal. They're going to look at the size of this college 
and say, "So what else did you do besides sit in the library all day?" 
If you go to a college this small, employers are going to assume that 
if you haven't been active in something, you are a social derelict. 
Whether that's true or not is beside the point, that's all they can 
assume. And being in Biology club, or writing an article for the paper 
once in a while simply isn't enough. You have to be able to show 
in writing that you've achieved some level of competency. 

I am Managing Editor of this paper. This never would have 
happened if I was at a school as large as Penn State. There, I'd be 
lucky to be a regular staff reporter, and I certainly wouldn't have 

had a feature column by the end of my freshman year. Anyone who 
knows me will tell you that I don't work that hard. The point is that 
this place has all kinds of opportunities you don't get at a big school. 
If you want to be a disc jockey on a big campus radio station, there 
are places where it won't happen unless you're a Mass Communi- 
cations major. Even then, you have to audition, only after you've done 
a specified number of hours of mandatory grunt work around the 
station. Here, if you want a radio show, you sign up for it. That's 
it. Prospective employers aren't stupid; they know this, and will ex- 
pect you to have taken advantage of opportunities. 

The other reason to get involved is to improve your status here at 
LVC. With the exception of anonymous scrawlings on the Napkin 
Board in the dining hall, I've rarely seen anyone try to constructively 
channel criticism. I'm sure the Board of Trustees sleeps better at night 
knowing they could hike tuition up to $40,000 a semester, and the 
students will be the last people they'd hear from . Take some stock 
in your own lives, folks. At least write some Letters to the Editor. 
You know, I can't believe that everyone who reads The Quad agrees 
with everything I write, and I really can't believe everyone agrees 
with everything Mark Scott writes. Take some time to voice an 
opinion; your silence implies consent and I wouldn't want that on my 
record . 

Get involved, for your own good. Don't wait until it's too late to 
do something about your own apathy. 


by Lorraine Englert 

What is LVC? Quite simply, LVC is a small, private, liberal arts 
college. What is the purpose of LVC? One purpose of LVC is "to 
provide an atmosphere in which the student can respond creatively 
to the contemporary world. Each person is encouraged to develop 
a genuine concern for cooperative living and community service."* 
The atmosphere and the encouragement exist; the area of concern is 
the student response. 

A tendency prevails which allows one student to assume a high 
degree of responsibility in many organizations or activities. This 
follows logically since that person has probably already illustrated 
his/her abilities and interest in another area and consequently becomes 
the best candidate for each new task which arises. The end result is 
that a single individual in effect does all the work. 

There are alternatives to this problem but their success relies upon 
the cooperation of other students. An example can be taken from cor- 
porations which have established time-sharing for those employees 
who can not devote forty hours a week to a job. This practice of 
sharing responsibility can apply just as well to commitments here 
at LVC. 

Even more to the point is the simple concept of teamwork. Com- 
mittees could replace chairpersons. Such a procedure would require 
that each committee be willing to accept their share of the respon- 
sibility but no one person would be required to accomplish everything

on their own. A system of this nature which succeeds through coopera- 
tion alleviates the time which must be devoted to a task but does not 
lessen the degree of commitment required. 

A prerequisite for cooperation and commitment is involvement. 
People often hesitate to get involved because the time and work 
required do not appear to be manageable. However, the fewer 
people who make commitments, the more work each person must 
do; hence, the fewer people who are willing to assume responsi- 
bility. Somehow this circle must be broken. 

Considering the student population, there is potential for a great 
deal of cooperation between all students; this is a luxury which is 
not available at larger institutions where numbers hinder the feasibility 
of such interaction. Opportunities such as this are a considerable 
factor in choosing a college. Students who have chosen LVC should 
be aware of the opportunity provided by our present environment and 
should not hesitate to take advantage of it.

The fall play, The Fantastiks, 
has had the longest run of any off- 
Broadway show. "It is a serious 
comedy; it's funny but it has 
underlying tones," says Director 
Erik Enters, a senior General 
Studies Major. 

The play accentuates the con- 
trast between romance and mar- 
riage. Romance flourishes in the 
first act as two fathers success- 
fully play Cupid to their off- 
spring by arranging their 
marriage while they remain 
blissfully unaware of the con- 
trivance. Illusions are dispelled in 
the second act as the former 
bride-to-be becomes "only the- 
girl-next-door." The couple must 
then learn to adapt to the stark 
realities of life. 

Director Erik Enters has con- 


siderable stage experience to his 
credit. His endeavors include

by Mark Scott 

There is a pestilence on this 
land. That pestilence is a lousy 
attitude that so many Americans 
today have about being 
Americans. It is a guilt trip, a 
chip on the shoulder. It is a feel- 
ing that we as Americans should 
feel guilty about something. It is 
an attitude that the American 
system isn't any better than any 
other. I think it stinks. 

I had a conversation with a 
friend the other afternoon that 
ended abruptly as I told him that 
I refused to argue with him any 
more and walked out. We were 
discussing the Soviet system as 
opposed to the American. I 
agreed with him that we may well 
be subliminally and socially pro- 
grammed as much as they are. 
His comment that angered me 
most, though, was that in dealing 
with them, we should match their 
lies with our lies. 

An attitude like that infuriates 
me. We Americans simply do not 
realize how good we have it here. 
Remember: our society is the one 
which has to have immigration 
restrictions because millions are 
trying to get in. The Soviet 
system has to build walls and 
barbed wire fences to prevent 
their people from leaving. 

If I ever get rich, I'd like to 
form a foundation which would 
pay for a one-way ticket behind 
the iron curtain for anyone with 
this attitude. I'd like to dump 
them right in Red Square, or 
better yet, the Eastern side of the 
Berlin wall without any money, 
passport, or status as an 
American citizen. They'd be 
forced to join in the Soviet system 
and see for themselves how good 
they have it here. Then, with the 
first part of their lesson learned, 
they'd want to come back to 
freedom. Only then would they 
find that even IF they can save the 
money, they couldn't leave. Then 
they could really say that their life 
in the U.S. is no better than life 
behind the iron curtain, where 
even internal movement is 

While I agree that our system 
is not equitable for all, we have 
something that they will never 
have: FREEDOM. They may 
have equality among masses (I 
won't even mention the ruling 
classes' privileged lifestyle) but 
they don't have freedom. 

Here in America we have 
religious, political, economic 
freedom, and freedom of expreS' 
sion. We can all excell if we have

what it takes. I remember a story 
once told to me that really 
demonstrates the contrasts bet- 
ween the system: An American 
and a Soviet were talking. The 
American was trying to explain 
the idea of freedom of speech. He 
said "Here in America, I can 
stand right in front of the Capitol 
and criticize my government." 
The Soviet replied, "But com- 
rade, I can stand right in front of 
the Kremlin and criticize your 
government, too." 

We in America, with our 
republican experiment have, in 
Jack Kemp's words, formed "a 
city on a hill." A model for the 
rest of the world to look to. A 
society of freedom where all can 
excel. The Soviet model has 
failed. In Poland, they actually 
had to declare martial law to 
prevent the proletariat, indeed the 
"workers of the world" in 
Marx's words, from uniting and 
overthrowing their oppressors, 
the "Vanguard of the revolu- 
tion." Why else are there now 
freedom fighters in virtually 
every communist society? 

Last week many Americans 
celebrated the "lessons of 
Granada week" in Washington 
and around the country. It was a 
commemoration of the first ever 
rollback of an actual Communist 
regime. Among the many spoils 
of war, our State Department 
managed to recover a number of 
secret documents of the inner- 
most workings of a communist 
state. A copy of the Granada 
Documents is now in the library. 
They are indeed fascinating. They 
are another great lesson in learn- 
ing to appreciate what we have 

The American system is not 
perfect. Indeed it is far from it. 
However, it is the best we have 
anywhere, and it is worth fighting 
for. I often wonder what would 
happen if Red Dawn came true. 
How many American's would 
fight for what we have here. I 
hope all of you would join me.

Field Hockey 

Dear Editor, 

This letter is to everyone who 
was given the impression that I 
quit the field hockey team to run 
cross country. I'd like you to read 
this because I, too, have my 

On October 19, there was a 
conflict between a hockey game 
and a cross country meet, both 
were scheduled at 1:00 p.m. 
Because I had played in all the 
hockey games but one and had 
run in all the cross country meets 
but one, I had to make a choice. 
This was the first conflict be- 
tween the two sports that could 
not be worked out so that I could 
participate in both. 

Both coaches were aware of the 

conflict and that a choice had to 
be made. On Friday, October 18, 
I informed Coach Tierney that I 
would be running with the cross 
country team on Saturday at the 
Dickinson Invitational. 

When I returned from the meet 
on Saturday, I heard from several 
members of the hockey team that 
in a team meeting Tierney had in- 
sinuated that I had quite the 
hockey team and had continued 
on to say other degrading things 
about me to the team. 

The following Monday, I ap- 
proached Coach Tierney and told 
her that I did not, in fact, quit. 
She said that she knew, but that 
she had kicked me off the team 
and had decided not to give me 

my varsity letter in hockey. When 
I asked her about the insinuations 
she had made to the team about 
me, she stated that the hockey 
team was her team and she had 
the right to say anything to them 
about anyone that she wanted to. 
She also said I had no right to 
make a decision about which 
athletic event to participate in. 

This story should have had a 
happy ending. The hockey team 
won its game, 2-0, and the cross 
country team won a third place 
trophy at the Dickinson Invita- 
tional. But the ending is far from 
happy. Members of the hockey 
team are angry with me because 
they were given the false impres- 
sion that I "quit on them." In 
addition, I got kicked off the 

hockey team and lost my letter. 

When I had to make the choice 
between running in a meet and 
playing in a hockey game, I was 
not trying to hurt anyone. 

I find it hard to understand why 
Coach Tierney would find it 
necessary to "put me down" ver- 
bally in front of my teammates, 
kick me off the team, and take my 
letter away because a conflict 
could not be worked out between 
the two sports and I made a 

I don't understand: Is this the 
type of behavior and action that 
is supported by the Lebanon 
Valley College athletic depart- 
ment and administration?

Dear Sir: 

The condition of many mater-

Library is simply less than 

I host an hour-long show for 
WLVC, the college radio station. 
My show consists entirely of 
classical recordings all of which 
are selected from the school 
library's collection of records. 

Having gone through the col- 
lection, I have found the records 
to be in poor condition. The 
record jackets were falling apart 
and the records themselves were 
scratched and scraped. On top of 
that, many of the recordings were 
so old that they sounded like a 
symphony performing outside in 
the middle of a snowstorm. 

Many of the books are no bet- 

ter off. I have had to use books 
for a report that were 25 years 

I think it is high time for the ad- 
ministration to take a good hard 
look at Grossard Memorial

library is in need of funds. 

As announced earlier in the 
month, the final payment on the 
Garber Science Center is going to 
be paid two years ahead of

Summer Exchange 

by Scott Kirk 

Want to get away from it all for 
2-3 months and still get an educa- 
tion, work and vacation on your 
own? It's not as impossible as you 
might think. Not if you enroll in 
the Summer Work Exchange Pro- 
gram for next year! 

Sponsored by the Foreign 
Languages Department, the pro- 
gram affords eligible students the 
chance to spend a summer 
abroad, vacationing, working and 
living in such countries as Spain, 
France and Germany. Although 
only 2 years old, the program has 
enabled opportunistic LVC 
students the chance to experience 
life in a foreign culture. Recent-

of: Lisa Russionello, piano; 
Suzanne Davis, harp; Leroy 
Whitehead, percussion; and Chad 
Saylor, bass. 

Performances will be Novem- 
ber 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 in the 
Little Theater at 8 PM. Show 
tickets cost $3.50. Dinner theater 
is available each Saturday for 
$13.50 which includes the show. 
Student ticket nights will be on 
both Sundays for only $1 at the 

ly, Stacie Micheel and April 
Oertel traveled to Germany for a 
full summer of work, education 
and fun. 

Micheel and Oertel, both 
sophomores, worked in the 
tourism business for 8 weeks 
(from the end of May to the 
beginning of August) in 
Freidrichshafen, Germany last 
summer. As restaurant and bar 
employees, they were able to put 
their German language skills to 
use. Oertel describes the town as 
"a little larger than Annville," 
and said that she and Micheel 
waitressed, bartended and work- 
ed in all other areas of the 
restaurant/pub/train station/ 
harbor dock. 

"We lived in the Bahnhof in 
guest rooms," Oertel explained, 
' 'along with a few other exchange 
students that were also working 
there for the summer — two Fin- 
nish girls and a girl from 
Holland. It was kind of strange 
because the only way we could 
understand them was through 
German, which was second 
language to all of us," she said. 

Oertel, who had had 4 years of 
German prior to the trip noted 

that she and Micheel felt more 
comfortable with the language as 
their stay went on. "By the end 
of two months we were speaking 
pretty fluently, although I 
remember that their south- 
German dialect was difficult at 
first to understand. Everybody 
thought it was funny that we 
would always speak German 
between ourselves — even when 
no one else was around! 

"Overall, just being over there 
for that long was fantastic. It was 
the best way to learn the 
language: not as a tourist, but as 
a resident," she suggested. 

Dr. James Scott, who is in 
charge of the program, rein- 
forced this idea of "...experi- 
encing the culture from the in- 
side. You get a resident's 
perspective that way," he 

Micheel, who also had four 
years of the language, experi- 
enced the importance of extensive 
language background and use. "It 
was a good thing I was so used 
to speaking German," she said, 
"because I ended up injured in an 
ambulance with paramedics that 
couldn't speak any English!" 
Micheel explained that she and 
one of her co-workers had a 
motorcycle accident that lead to 

their injuries. 

"One of the things I learned 
about that was how gracious the 
Germans can be. These people 
put me up for 3 weeks in their 
home because I had to recover 
from sprains to my left shoulder 
and foot. The funny thing was 
that they didn't even know me!" 

Part of the "exchange" that 
occurs within the program is the 
information each culture shares 
with the other through the 
students. Both Oertel and Micheel 
learned more about the German 
culture, but did not expect the 
questions the native people bom- 
barded them with. "A lot of what 
they know of America is what 
they see on American TV pro- 
grams that they see over there," 
Micheel said. "They've got Hill 
St. Blues, Hotel and Magnum all 
dubbed, of course. A lot of that 
stuff is popular with the younger 
generation, plus they talk about 
New York, the Statue of Liberty 
and California. And guess what? 
The Germans learn that there are 
52 states in the U.S.! 

"Overall, they're about 15-20 
years behind the U.S. in their 
ways of thinking." Micheel ex- 
plained that she didn't feel their 
ideas were wrong; only that many

Do 'a Quintet Brings 
"World Music" to LVC 

Sweigart Performs 
on November 10 

by Lisa Camburn 

On Saturday, October 19, 
another act from the Top Hat and 
Blue Jeans Master Series graced 
the LVC stage. They were Do'a 
World Music Ensemble. Do'a 
uses, in their concerts, more than 
70 instruments from around the 

The group was started in 1974 
by Randy Armstrong and Ken 
LaRoche. For nine years they 
were a duo, but then decided they 
needed to expand a bit, so they 
asked Marty Quinn to do percus- 
sion, and performed as a trio for 
six months. For their fourth 
album, they expanded even fur- 
ther by asking John Hunter and 
Charlie Jennison to play on a few 
songs. The five worked so well 
together that Quinn, Hunter, and 
Jennison became permanent 

Each of the members are very 
multi-talented. Armstrong per- 
forms on acoustic and classical 
guitar, West African balofon and 
adodo drum (talking drum), man- 
dolin harp, Japanese biwa, 
Chinese yueh-chin, sitar, South 
African mbira, Bolivian charan- 
ngo, tabla, and percussion. 
LaRoche performs on concert 

and alto flute, piano, sythesizer, 
soprano saxophone. North Indian 
bansri flutes, South American 
pan-pipes, South African kalim- 
ba and mbira, and various 

Quinn performs on North 
Indian tabla, acoustic and elec- 
tronic drums, South African 
kalimba, West African adodo 
drum (talkng drum), slit drums, 
voice, and percussion. 

Jennison performs on saxo- 
phones, flutes, keyboards and 
percussion, and Hunter performs 
basically as a bassist. 
Do'a (pronounced doe-ah) is an 
Arabic word signifying a call to 
prayer and meditation. With the 
exception of Hunter, all of the 
members are of the Baha'i faith, 
and many of their songs are in- 
fluenced by their beliefs. They 
are inspired by a particular instru- 
ment, or Baha'i prayers, or a 
special moment in their own 
lives. Armstong told me, "Our 
songs need to come from a spark 
within the heart — a sense of 
upliftment and joy." 

Do'a describes their music as 
"World Music," since it's a 
blending of musical styles from 

Students Input 
For Change 

The Napkin Minutes is a report 
put out by the Student Menu Plan 
ning Committee which summar- 
izes the issues discussed at the 
monthly meeting. The report is 
designed to keep you informed of 
the various opinions of campus 
residents and to encourage further 
input. If you would like to add 
any comments concerning our 
Food Service, do not hesitate to 
tell your organization's represen- 
tative to the committee, Bert 
Kreigh or Maria DeMario. 

Kreigh began the Oct. 9 
meeting by announcing Rae

Several compliments were 
received on the salad bar items 

and the baked goods. 

Students also expressed they 
would like to see more of their 
following favorites: chicken 
sandwiches, plain egg and tuna at 
the salad bar, correctly sized 
rolls, and raisin bagels. 

Some individual needs were 
also addressed. Campus vegetar- 
ians requested more non-meat 
food items on the menu. Athletes 
would like to have some food 
items saved since they cannot eat 
until late in the meal hours. 

A potential meal plan for 
students who do not attend certain 
meals was also brought up. 

A student survey concerning 
Food Service will be given out to 
all residents in the near future. 
This will be a second opportunity 
for students to give their opin-

When the Lebanon Valley 
College Orchestra takes the stage 
on Sunday, November 10 at 3 
p.m. in Lutz Hall, Dr. Dennis 
Sweigart, Associate Professor of 
Music, will be the guest per- 
former. This will be Sweigart's 
fourth appearance with the 

Dr. Sweigart, a 1963 LVC 
graduate, will join the orchestra 
in playing Variations Symphoni- 
quefor Piano and Orchestra writ- 
ten by Franck. This is the feature 
piece for the concert. Dr. 
Klement Hambourg, conductor, 
has based the rest of the concert 
around this one idea. 

The Lebanon Valley perfor- 
mance is not the only one which 
Sweigart is preparing for. On 
February 3, Sweigart, along with 
1 8 other musicians will present an 
all-Stravinsky concert. Pieces 
which are scheduled for that per- 
formance are Soldiers Tale and 
Concerto for Piano and Winds. 
"I spend between two-and-a-half 
and three hours a day prac- 
ticing," said Sweigart. "When I 
have student recitals I spend less 
time since I am busy preparing 

them, but I try to practice at least 
two hours a day." Dr. Sweigart 
has been preparing for both con- 
certs since this summer and he 
added, "Following Sunday's con- 
ert, I'll devote my time to the 
February concert." 

Dr. Sweigart has played piano 
since he was six. At the Univer- 
sity of Michigan, where he 
received his M.M., Sweigart 
studied piano with John Shandor, 
and internationally known pianist. 
At the University of Iowa, where 
he received his D.M.A., he 
studied with John Simms. 

Sweigart does not limit his 
teaching to Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege students, but to persons of all 
ages from the area. "I give 
lessons to children, doctors, 
plastic surgeons, and grandmas," 
said Sweigart. He feels that 
Lebanon Valley's music program 
gives music majors a basic 
background from which they can 
move towards their special areas. 
Looking back as a student and 
now as a professor at LVC, 
Sweigart believes the music pro- 
gram to be very strong and sees 
a general trend towards more 
committed students.

porated into the leadership pro- 
gram. Little is known to be cer- 
tain. General Education re- 
quirements and class curriculum 
is still undecided. The current 
"new student" leadership pro- 
gram will be continued, but it 
might be slightly modified. It will 
serve as a "stepping stone" for 
further class work. University of 
Vermont, West Point, Universi- 
ty of Texas, Stanford, and Texas 
A&M all have similar leadership 
programs that are being studied 
by the Steering Committee. 

Dr. Thompson asserted that 
pending faculty and administra- 
tion approval, these courses 

would be offered for the fall 
semester of next year. This 
"brainchild" of President Peter- 
son's fits perfectly with the ideals 
of a liberal arts education. It is 
designed to broaden the student's 
appreciation for leaders and how 
they work in society. In summ- 
ing up the purpose of these 
courses Dr. Thompson said the 
courses would "produce people 
who could look at current leaders 
with a critical eye and without 
any political bias." It is the 
school's purpose to expand the 
student's understanding of leader- 
ship and not necessary to produce

ly left open to all students and 
faculty during the weekly chapel 

Chaplain John Smith, Dr. 
Robert Clay, Dr. John Kearney, 
and Dr. James Scott are current-

the meal. There will be no cost 
to resident or commuting 
students, but faculty will be 
charged $5.00. 

Secretary General George Miller, 
former Commander of Strategic 
Air Command, and current chair- 
man of the U.S. Olympic Com- 
mittee, will be on campus 
November 21 and 22. 

Miller will be here primarily to 
address the Chief Executive 
Officer (CEO) Leadership series 
on November 22 on the subject of 
leadership in the military- 
industrial complex. However, he 
will come to the campus a day 
early to speak in the Little

Elementary Children 
Enjoy LVC Halloween 

by Laurie Sava 

On Wednesday night, October 
30, twenty-two first through third 
graders from North Annville 
Elementary School enjoyed trick- 
or-treating and a Halloween 
party in Silver Hall. Residents of 
the dorm and other LVC students 
chaperoned and entertained these 
costumed children from 6:30 
until 8:30 that evening. 

This was not part of a required 
project for Elementary Educa- 
tion. The idea orginated with Joan 
Hevel, a sophomore resident stu- 
dent of Silver. She became con- 
cerned this summer when she 
became aware of the problem of 
missing children and the plans of 
fearful neighbors to forbid their 
children to trick-or-treat because 
of the many abductions. Wanting 
to provide a safe environment in 
which children could still enjoy 
traditional Halloween fun, she 
considered the possibilities of 
using her college dormitory for 
this purpose. Upon returning to 
LVC, she tested the idea on some 
of her friends. Together, she, 
Erin Eshleman, Robyn Keough, 
and Lore-Lee Bruwelheide 
made tentative plans for a party. 

The next step was to get ap- 

proval for the idea. This was 
more complicated than expected. 
First the four approached Debbie 
Dressier, Head Resident of Silver 
Hall. Debbie thought is was a 
great idea, but told them what 
they needed to consult Dean 
Rosemary Yuhas to get approval. 
With Dean Yuhas, the four made 
more definite plans and discuss- 
ed how to implement them. 

North Annville Elementary 
School was chosen because the 
children from that more rural area 
would have less places to trick- 
or-treat. The pincipal of the 
school was called and she, in 
turn, had to schedule a staff 
meeting. The girls decided to 
target first through third grade 
children. They were told that this 
group comprised one hundred 
and forty children. They then 
designed a letter with a permis- 
sion slip to distribute to the 
children for their parent's ap- 
proval. The party was thus set for 
Wednesday night from 6:30 to 
8:30 P.M. 

Meanwhile, the residents of 
Silver had been polled to indicate 
interest and willingness to help 
with the party. Students signed up 

to escort the children through the 
dorm as they trick-or-treated, to 
stand guard at the exits to make 
sure children didn't wander in or 
out of the building, to have candy 
to offer the trick-or-treaters, to 
bake and to help in chaperoning 
the party., 

On Wednesday evening, LVC 
students were ready. They did not 
allow children to enter Silver 
unless they had a signed permis- 
sion slip. The residents who had 
candy for the children hung a 
white ghost on their doors to 
indicate that they were par- 
ticipating. It took the children on- 
ly about twenty minutes to go 
through the entire dorm. Then the 
party commenced, complete with 
food, bobbing for apples, and a 
costume-judging. Prizes were 
awarded for the most original, 
cutest, and scariest costume. 
Lore-Lee taught a song/game to 
the children. At the end was a 
candy scramble. The residents 
who had left-over candy dontated 
it to the party, and it was all 
thrown in a pile in the middle of 
the floor. The children, upon 
hearing the signal, had to 
"scramble" for the candy. 

Henderson Speaks 

Current issues affecting tele- 
vision program practices range 
from sex and violence to the 
accuracy of the ideas being 

Alice M. Henderson, Vice 
President of Program Practices 
for the CBS Broadcast Group, 
addressed questions about such 
issues in her recent visit to WHP, 
Channel 21, in Harrisburg. 

Henderson's job entails 
previewing scripts, shows (ex- 
cluding news) and advertising to 
make sure their contents are

acceptable within the current 
"general standards" of CBS. She 
noted that those standards are 
forever changing with the 
changing society. 

Several area colleges and com- 
munity organizations were invited 
to attend the program on Satur- 
day, October 19, 1985. Dr. John 
P. Kearney, professor of English, 
and senior English majors Pete 
Johansson and Maria Montesano 
represented LVC. 

The program started with a 
brief tour of the WHP Broadcast 

had kept traditional viewpoints on 
such subjects as male-female rela- 
tionships, for one. 

"One of the things I kept 
running into was that they are 
really touchy about the war," 
Micheel continued. "It's carried 
over into everything they do. 
When they work, they're very 
serious." She added that many of 
the Germans are still trying to 
shake the negative reputation 
associated with their ancestors' 
role in the war. 

Micheel said she experienced a 
great deal of the family roles in 
modern Germany. "The younger 
generation is somewhat like us, 
but a lot more simplistic. Their 
parents are simplistic also, but 
pretty much stuck in the past. I 

did notice that the family units as 
a whole are a lot closer — even 
after marriage," she said. 

After getting a taste of travel- 
ing and living abroad, both Oertel 
and Micheel plan to return to 
Europe before their educations 
are over at LVC. While Oertel 
noted that she planned to spend 
her junior year in France, 
Micheel said she plans to return 
to Germany even sooner — next 

"My major is biology, and 
foreign language really doesn't fit 
in with my career plans," she 
said. "But I'm going anyway. I 
really like it there — I kind of fell 
in love with Lake Constance." 

Dr. Scott noted that only pre- 
requisites for the program are 

Then, a one-hour question and 
answer session with Henderson 
was taped. While most questions 
dealt with the more social/moral 
issues of drugs, sex and violence 
on television; other questions ad- 
dressed television advertising. 

The taping will be edited into 
a one-half hour program and 
aired on Sunday, November 17, 
1985, at 5:30 p.m. on Channel 

The taping was followed by an 
informal gathering and luncheon 
with Henderson and the WHP 

completions of the intermediate 
level of the language. Although 
the summer work exchange has 
only been offered in Germany so 
far, he suggested that other work 
exchange opportunities may arise 
in other countries. 

"I'd really like to see more 
students take advantage of the op- 
portunity of this sort of inter- 
national experience," Scott said. 
"You get the perspective of a stu- 
dent. That's a lot different than

Sports Editorial 

by Jennifer Ross 

It's amazing the miscon- 
ceptions we have on this campus. 
Most of us here think that the soc- 
cer team is the same as always. 
Though it may seem that way, 
there is a distinct difference 
between this team and past teams. 
That difference is their coach — 
Randy Behney. 

I had a very nice talk with him 
last week about the team. Though 
he says he is somewhat dis- 
appointed with the team's incon- 
sistent play thus far, he is op- 
timistic for the rest of the season 
and especially for next year. He 
feels the team has a good foun- 

dation to build on from this year 
and, so far, has had a good year 

The main set-back for the team 
this season has been injuries 
which, he feels, stems from the 
teams lack of experience. He is 
working to overcome the inex- 
perience by starting four of the 
freshman this year. 

With a new attitude, more 
discipline, a better level of play, 
and, mostly, a coach who has the 
patience to take the time, the soc-

Cross Country 

by Tracy Wenger 

Led by John Hibshman and 
freshman Mike Lieb, the men's 
cross-country team has compiled 
a 10-6 record after defeating 
Washington and losing to 
Western Maryland last Saturday. 
The victories against Ursinus, 
25-34, and Johns Hopkins, 24-31 
marked the turning point of the 
season. With the double victory, 
the team will be guaranteed its 
first winning season since 1980. 
At a tough Hopkins course, the 
team ran as a pack and effective- 
ly pulled each other along to beat, 
teams which in the past have 
given LV trouble. 

Tri-captains this year are 
juniors John Hibshman, Ed Slagle 
and senior Jeff Boland. Although 
John has been plagued by nagg- 

ing injuries all season, he and 
Mike Lieb have been a powerful 
1-2 punch. Ed Slagle has been 
finishing a consistent third ail 
season with freshman Chuck 
Goodvin running fourth. The fifth 
man position has been shared by 
freshman Andy Hamann, juniors 
Mike Royer and Gary Ressor. 
Coach Unger has seen definite 
improvement from the beginning 
of the season when the first five 
runners finished within five 
minutes of each other. In a recent 
22-35 win against Elizabethtown, 
the harriers finished six men 
within 4:32 of each other. 

The men also beat Muhlenberg 
22-34, but fell to Wilkes 20-36 
and a strong Franklin & Mar- 
shall, 17-46. 

The words teamwork, hard 
working and committment ac- 
curately describe the women's 
cross country team this fall. The 
Lady Dutchmen have compiled a 
campus best 12-6 record as they 
beat Western Maryland in the 
final home meet last Saturday. 

On Parent's Weekend, the har- 
riers handed smashing losses to 
Elizabethtown, 15-49, and 
Wilkes, 15-50. The day was not 
perfect as they lost to Scranton 
25-30. However, the narrow 
margin of loss is significant 
because Scranton is a strong team 
as evidenced by their fourth place 
finish in the mid-east regional last 
year. Coach Unger says that 
Scranton did not graduate their 
team, nor did they slack off by 
not sending their top runners. 
Also the victory against Eliza- 
bethtown is sweet as E-town has 
beaten LV in the last two years. 
The women were also victorious 
over Ursinus, 25-30, — another 
team that has beaten them before. 

Coach Unger sites two factors 
for the team's success. First, the 
upperclassmen who returned 

possess a strong committment 
to improve. Co-captains 
Stephanie Butter and Nicole 
Emrich have run their best times 
since 1983. Sophomore returnees 
include Elaine Beard, Laura Ber- 
zkalns, and Lissa Jennings. Each 
of these runners worked over the 
summer and the work has shown. 
In cross country, hard work over 
the summer is realized at the end 
of the season when the teams are 
beginning to tire from the grind. 
Any strong team is built from a 
strong nucleus and this year is no 

The second factor of success is 
the talent added to the core from 
last year. Freshman Cindy Sladek 
has been the lead runner from the 
outset of the season. She set a 
school record on Homecoming, 
placed first in the LVC Invita- 
tional, and fourth at the Dickin- 
son Invitational. Freshman Sue 
Yingst, started the season in the 
second position, but senior Tracy 
Wenger has challenged her 
recently. Stephanie Butter has 
been a consistent fourth while 
freshman Laurie Mutz round out 
the top 5. 

Volleyball Club 
Organized by LVC Women 

by Susan Maruska 

LVC women now have another 
sport to play besides field hockey, 
cross country, basketball and 
softball. It is'volleyball. 

The organization is not 
recognized as a team yet, just as 
a club. It will take approximate- 
ly two years for the team to be- 
come established. 

The idea for the volleyball team 
developed last spring, but due to 
complications, it didn't get 
started. This fall, with the com- 
bined efforts of Donna Kilmer, 
Shelly Marsh, Alison Dursthoff, 
Bobbie Arbogast, Olga Seman- 
chick and Coach Tom Nelson, the 
team became a reality. 

According to Donna Kilmer, 
student coach, Tom Nelson was 
a major influence. She said, 
"He's bent over backwards to 
help us. He has given us a lot of 
advice, has been really en- 

thusiastic and wants to help pro- 
mote athletics here." 

The first step in the plan was 
to call other colleges to see if 
there was interest. A lot of the 
schools were interested, so they 
then drafted a list of long range 
goals and plans and submitted 
them to Student Council. The 
club received $300 from the 
Council for uniforms and volley- 
ball poles. 

Next, they talked to Dean Mar- 
quette, who was highly in favor 
of the club and gave his approval . 

Tryouts were then held, with 
more than thirty women trying 
out for the team. Eventually, the 
roster was cut to fifteen and then 
to the present number of thirteen. 

According to Kilmer, "The 
team has done well, considering 
we've only been practicing for a 
little over a month and the majori- 

The Girls' Volleyball Club is (Row 1) Shelly Marsh, Donna 
Kilmer, Bobbie Arbogast, Alison Dursthoff, Olga Semanchick; 
(Row 2) Dana Strausser, Elena Sicignano, Anne Semanchick, 
Lori Shenk; (Row 3) Sue Scott, Robin Keough, Joanne 
Hoffman, Vicki Secreto and Lottie Leakey.

ty of players haven't played 
regulation volleyball. We have a 
lot of talented people and there is 
also a strong potential here for 
volleyball as a sport." 

Tony Lencioni, from Har- 
risburg, helps to coach the club. 
He also coaches another women's 
volleyball team, who sometimes 
comes to practice against the 
club. Lencioni said the club has 
come a long way since the end of 

Kilmer also said the long range 
goals are to eventually have a col- 
legiate team and to buy a good net 
and standards for next year so 
they can have home games. But 
a problem that could stop them is 
a lack of funding. 

So far, the team has played 
York College, Shippensburg, 
Gettysburg, who invited them 
back for a tournament; Albright, 
whom they beat; and Dickinson. 
They played Franklin & Marshall 

Kilmer said Lencioni has been 
giving everyone equal playing 
time, but in the game against 
Albright, she put in the stronger 
players and they won. 

The general concensus of the 
group who started the club is: 1. 
They have come a long way with 
practice; 2. Their long range 
goals are worth the time and 
trouble; 3 . If they want the equip- 
ment, they will have to get it. 

Kilmer added, "With the club, 
we've shown that positive things 
can come if we work for them, 
but students must take the in- 
itiative. Everyone in the club has 
put out a lot, especially finan- 
cially, but it will be worth it in 
the end."

'Greek Week' 
Stresses Unity 

by Lorraine Englert 

On Sunday, November 1 1, the 
first ever Greek Week at LVC 
began. Participants in this 
endeavor included all social and 
service fraternities and sororities. 
The model for this event was 
taken from other colleges where 
these types of activities take place 

The idea to have a Greek Week 
came up in casual conversation, 
says Maria Tursi. She continues, 
"We thought it would be fun to 
get together, create more unity 
and maybe a better image. ' ' Dan 
Rafferty says the purpose of 
Greek Week is a way "to get 
more people to particpate on 
campus." He adds "There's 
really no outlet for the Greeks to 
get together and have fun. We're 
usually competing for pleges." 

A committee was formed to 
organize Greek Week. The com- 
mittee consisted of represen- 
tatives from each of the organiza- 
tions involved. The members in- 
cluded: Bobbi Arbogast, Glenn 
Bootay, Rich Bradley, Kathy 
Brown, Bill Giovino, Georgia 
Haines, Karen Karapadza, 
Carolyn Mealey, Joe Myers, 
Mike Royer, Karen Ruliffson, 
Jeff Sitler and Maria Tursi. 

Joe Myers provided much of 
the information needed to com- 
plete planning. Once plans were 
formulated, they had to be taken 
to the Dean's Office for approval. 
Maria Tursi, President of Gam- 
ma Sigma Sigma, conferred with 
D ean Youhas. Dan Rafferty, 
President of KALO, approached 
Dean Marquette. 

Joe Myers also organized the 
switch partners for the week, 
each participant received the 
n arne of one or more people with 
w hom t h e y were to exc hange 
clothing. The clothing, which 

contained the name of the switch 
partner's sorority or fraternity, 
was to be worn at least three 
times during the week. The 
Greeks met on Sunday night at 
7 P.M. to complete the exchange 
and start off the week. 

The event which took place on 
Monday was a touch football 
game in the academic quad at 
4:45 P.M. Tuesday's agenda 
consisted of a pie eating contest 
at approximately 5:15 P.M. in 
the West Dining Hall. On 
Wednesday, an obstacle course 
took place in the gym. At 
9:30 P.M. on Thursday, there 
was a Tug-of-War on the athletic 
field. Friday, a game of musical 
chairs was set up in the College 
Center. For the football game on 
Saturday, plans were made for 
each organization to decorate the 
bleechers in their colors and come 
out to support the team in their 
last game of the season. 

Two problems arose which 
diminised the success of Greek 
Week to a degree. Initially, the 
rainy weather interferred with the 
execution of and enthusiamsm for 
some of the organized activities. 
The second factor was the 
number of tests and other obliga- 
tions which most students are 
responsible for at this time of the 

Despite these difficulties, 
Greek Week got a good recep- 
tion. Plans are being made now 
for a Greek Week next semester. 
Says Dan Rafferty, "I think it 
would be better in the spring 
time. There would be more op- 
portunities to go outside. We'd 
like to build on what we have now 
and make it better." Mark Alex- 
ander, an APO representative 
comments, "I'm happy there's a

Eagles Camp Eyed 

by Tina Weber 

"It's on the drawing board look- 
ing at the possibilities down the 
pike about earliest '87- '88," said 
Dr. Arthur Peterson, President of 
Lebanon Valley College in an in- 
terview on Monday. 

Norman Braman, owner of the 
Philadelphia Eagles and native of 
Lebanon, expressed an interest in 
making Lebanon Valley College 
the new site of the Eagles' sum- 
mer training camp, said Peterson. 
The college returned the interest 
and is presently looking into the 
possibilities. "We're going to see 
what in the long range we need 
to do to again interest them in 
coming in '87 or '88." 

What would this mean to LVC? 
For Lebanon Valley the Eagles 
training camp would mean, said 
Peterson, attracting some con- 
siderable publicity and upgrading 

and increasing the athletic facili- 
ties which would help the regular 
intramural and intercollegiate 

Peterson said before the Eagles 
would be able to use the college 
for summer training camp some 
construction work would need to 
be done. The weight room, locker 
room, dormitories and playing 
fields would all need to meet 
specifications established by the 

The Eagles sent representatives 
to look at the college. "They said 
that apparently it would be im- 
possible to get our grounds in 
shape for the next year ( 1 986) in 
time, but that we ought to see 
what the long range future held," 
said Peterson. 

"We're tying to be responsive 
in a responsible way, so that it 
helps the college and in no way 

hinders it, financially or other- 
wise," said Peterson. Peterson 
has talked to a number of people 
who have had direct experiences 
with summer camps, including 
former professional players and 
presidents of colleges who've had 
summer camps at their campuses. 
Peterson said that most of the 
people he has been in contact with 
have said that the camps were a 
plus, but he wants to make posi- 
tive that's what it actually is. 

Peterson said, next to being a 
matter of concern for the college 
it is also a matter of concern for 
the community. He stated that he 
hopes to get a group of students, 
staff members and community 
members together to talk the idea 
out to decide what would it mean 
and how would it be helpful to the 
college and the community.

Student Leadership Council 

Board Includes Reps From Campus Groups 

Recently, there have been mur- 
murings of a Student Leadership 
Council developing here at LVC . 
How did the SLC get started and 
why? What is it? What will it do? 

The idea of developing a SLC 
originated at this fall's Leadership 
Retreat. For those of you who 
aren't aware, the LR is an educa- 
tional activity held annually by 
Cheryl Weichsel and the Student 
Activities Office where all student 
organizational leaders are invited 
to develop their leadership skills 
and are informed of the services 
available to them. It was realiz- 
ed at the LR that many of the 
positive changes made in the col- 

lege were being made without 
consulting students, and that it 
didn't take a lot of effort, time or 
money to make many more 
positive changes with the 
students' interests in mind. What 
better way to find out what the 
students' interests are than 
through the regularly held 
meetings of organizations. The 
student organizational leaders 
provide a quick means to collect 
and disseminate information to 
and from a vast majority of the 
students on campus. 

The SLC is not another means 
of griping about the college, 
where angry students can vent 

their frustrations. The SLC is a 
means for enthusiastic students 
who love the college to find ways 
of improving it. And through the 
network of organizations it will 
be possible to get the best 
representation of students wishes. 

What the SC plans to do is find 
out how the students would like 
to improve the college, make 
plans for the practical implemen- 
tation of these changes, and then 
present these plans to the 
members of the Presidential Staff 
responsible for these changes at 
regularly scheduled meetings.

Slowing Down 

by Pete Johansson 

Yeech. One of the problems with being on the Editorial Staff of 
any newspaper is that you're expected (by whom, I'm not sure) to 
fill a decent amount of space with a thought-provoking Editorial on 
some subject or other even when there's nothing going on. Sure there's 
the Geneva Summit, but that's not underway at the time of this writing, 
and it will be over by the time you're reading this. I can't think of 
anything burning happening on campus, and my usual stand-bys have 
already been written. I was thinking of running a past Editorial, but 
that's a dirty trick and we'Ve all suffered enough, anyway. 

So what I'd like to do in this space is offer a few suggestions on 
what one can do over vacation to help relieve the ever-present col- 
legiate stress. Once we get back it's all downhill until finals, so we 
might as well take a deep breath over Thanksgiving. Here are a few 

—Read a good book. No, really, I'm serious. We all have so much 
reading to do during the course of the semester that we've forgotten 
how enjoyable a good book read for pleaseure can be. The trick is 
to read something that moves fast and doesn't require too much 
thought. My favorite authors for this are Robert Ludlum (the first 
time I read The Rhinemann Exchange it was all in one sitting), Allistair 
MacLaine, and Dashiell Hammett (author of The Thin Man and The 
Maltese Falcon). Or if you're not in the mood for something that 
serious, try Tom Robbins or Tom Wolfe {not Thomas Wolfe, at least 
not for light reading). Whatever your tastes are, pick a light book 
along those lines, whether they be romance, science fiction or (God 
Forbid) Stephen King. 

-Do something with your hands. This is a great way to slow down 
and reduce stress. Build a model from a kit. Try your hand at 
whittling. Work in the yard. Go to a toy store and buy some Play- 
Doh. I used to have some of this in my last apartment, and it was 
great stuff to have to pound and mold and get rid of anxieties until 
my obnoxious cat ate it. Enjoy yourself. 

—Call up an old friend from high school, one you haven't seen 
for a while (this may be difficult if you're a freshman, but there's 
got to be someone you haven't seen since August). Go out to a bar 
or ice cream parlor or 24-hour diner, and spend a few hours just 
catching up on events. I have some good friends here, but it's nice 
to get together once in a while with someone who isn't from LVC 
so I can talk about something besides school for a change. 

—Take a walk. There are two ideal places to do this. One is in 
your neighborhood, wandering around to see what's changed and what 
hasn't. I haven't spent more than two weeks in my neighborhood at 
home for about six years, and it's amazing how little the place has 
changed. The other ideal place to take a walk is in a section of woods 
or countryside near your house. Unless you live on 13th and Arch 
Streets in Philadelphia, everyone has some kind of secluded area not 
too far from where they live. Don't think about school; pleasantly 
daydream instead. 


You owe it to yourself to have a relaxing break. We've been going 
nonstop since August, and we've got to take some time out for 
ourselves. Take care of yourself next week, and the last few weeks 
of the semester will go a whole lot faster. 



Dear Editor: 

I would like to commend Mr. 
Johansson for his article in the 
last edition of The Quad entitled 
"LVC Apathy." I hope it gives 
others that extra "umph" it gave 
me to speak up about problems 
we feel exist on campus. I'm 
ashamed to say that I have held 
back a grievance until now that I 
feel should be aired. 

First, I would like to say that 
I enjoy reading each edition of 
The Quad for all the campus 
news, sports reports, coverage of 
special programs, and reviews. It 
keeps a person "in touch," and 
in this sense, is doing what the 

school newspaper should do. My 
grievance to The Quad, however, 
concerns the running column en- 
titled "Valley Viewpoint" by 
Mark Scott. I'd like to ask 
everyone, "Is this the viewpoint 
of 'The Valley'?" I don't believe 
it is! This is merely the view of 
one highly politically oriented in- 
dividual presented to us in each 
and every issue. While I believe 
completely in Mark's rights to 
freedom of speech, and somehow 
I must respect his political opi- 
nions, it is the presence of this 
particular type of column in our 
newspaper that I feel is extreme- 
ly inappropriate. I do not suggest 

that we print another column 
presenting at least an alternative 
if not an opposing viewpoint 
although this would certainly be 
a step towards establishing an 
equilibrium where there is cur- 
rently an extreme imbalance of 
opinon presented in The Quad. I 
don't believe our college paper is 
the place for these articles of 
political persuasion. 

Perhaps LVC's politically 
oriented individuals or organiza- 
tions could establish a more ap- 
propriate periodical just for the 
purpose of printing students' 
political opinions; then perhaps 
students would have a balanced 
resource from which to draw 
upon as a reference of the college 
political environment. 

Otherwise, let's let The Quad 

do the job of spreading news of 
student life and campus events. 
I'd like to suggest that The Quad 
devote some more reporting to 
students' individual achieve- 
ments. Isn't this what the school 
newspaper is all about?

Editor's Note: 

Editorial policy in The Quad is 
loosely structured. Since the rest 
of the paper limits itself to cam- 
pus news, policy on the Editorial 
pages is to comment on current 
events as well as school policy 
and events, since both have an 
impact on student life. In addi- 
tion, since The Quad is the only 
student publication that comes out 
more than once a year, we feel an

With deficits higher than we 
ever imagined, and a national 
debt approaching $2 trillion, 
you'd think that it was about time 
that something was done. Presi- 
dent Reagan began the first steps 
toward deficit control when he 
ran for office in 1980. His goal 
was then a balanced budget. 

We all know what happened to 
that. Political reality and Con- 
gressional pressure made any real 
deficit fighting programs impossi- 
ble. At least until now. 

The government, believe it or 
not, does actually have to set the 
level of debt it allows itself to ac- 
cumulate. This is called the 
federal debt ceiling. That it is a 
joke is obvious given the current 
deficit and debt levels. Congress 
just raises it anytime it's 
"necessary and proper." How- 
ever, the government cannot 
legally exceed the limit it im- 
poses. If the ceiling is not raised 
before the level is met, the 
government would have to stop 
borrowing, and would default on 
all its checks. It would be, in ef- 
fect, bankrupt. 

This has been the constant 
trend until this fall. You see, the 
debt ceiling hike has always been 
a convenient way to force other- 
wise unpopular legislation 
through the congress. Just tack on 
a rider, and in its need to get the 
debt ceiling raised, Congress will 
probably pass it, or else. 

This makes the debt ceiling 
hike a very clever tool. Since it 
must be raised periodically, you 
can do all kinds of clever things 
with it. 

Well, the debt ceiling was 
reached this fall once again. 
However, instead of just raising 
it, the Republicans who control 
the Senate, with the support of the 
President, decided to use it to do 
something about the deficit. 
Senator Bob Dole, the majority 
leader, pushed for a deficit reduc- 
tion package. A bill was written,

and tacked on to the Senate ver- 
sion of the debt ceiling bill. You 
' see, this bill would be unpopular 
because it will REALLY trim the 
fat out of government. It will 
slash spending across the board in 
all areas. Bills like this are un- 
popular in the Congress, because 
they hurt the congressmen where 
they live— their districts. 

The name of this bill is 
Gramm-Rudman. Its principal 
sponsor is Senator Phil Gramm of 
Texas, who visited LVC two 
years ago when he was still Con- 
gressman Gramm, the famous 
turncoat former Democrat. Well, 
Gramm, Rudman and Dole, with 
help from Democratic Senator 
Fritz Hollings, pushed the bill 
through the narrowly Republican- 
held Senate with 75% of the vote. 
Even Ted Kennedy voted for it. 

We need Gramm-Rudman. It 
will slash spending across the 
board. Our generation needs it, 
because if nothing is seriously 
done about the deficit now, our 
generation will have to pay dear- 
ly for it. The aim of this bill is 
to balance the budget by 1991 . It 
CAN be done. You see, this bill 
is radical in that it would give the 
President a line-item veto, so that 
he could pass the budget itself, 
yet take exception to certain pro- 

cont. from p. 2 

obligation to present a forum for 
thought and discussion on current 
events on the editorial pages. For 
this reason, Mark Scott is per 
mined, yes, even encouraged, to 
responsibly comment on interna- 
tional, national, and campus 
events, partially to balance an ad- 

visions, without having to veto 
the whole thing. Further, it 
authorizes the President to in- 
stitute cuts himself if Congress 
fails to make the constraints on 
spending in the bill. 

Naturally, it is controversial. 
First, the Democratic House 
leadership manuevered financial- 
ly to extend the ceiling deadline. 
Then, they wrote their own plan 
to do the same thing, virtually 
identical to Gramm-Rudman. 
You can see that it has not had an 
easy time. 

Most recently, the President 
pushed to postpone the final 
showdown. The House has 
passed its version, and the Senate, 
Gramm-Rudman. They must now 
resolve the differences between 
the bills in a Conference Commit- 
tee, essentially a big bargaining 
session. That could take some 
time, and the government could 
default during that period. With 
that deadline being last week, and 
the Gorbachev summit this week 
President Reagan didn't want a 
default on the eve of the summit. 
Thus, there has been a short term 
increase which should last until 
December. The clash of the titan 
will occur then, but we clearly 
NEED a comprehensive deficit 
reduction plan, one with a line 
item veto and one which will 
allow the President to act if Con- 
gress balks on cuts. Gramm- 
Rudman, or a compromise 
thereof, MUST PASS. 

mittedly liberal bias on the part

up any confusion about the con-

hope that you and other readers 
will continue to respond to the 


To the editor, 

When the Biology Orientation 
course met recently the students 
were asked to brainstorm the con- 
cept of the 'ideal' college. The 60 
students in the room were to of- 
fer their suggestions on any 
aspect of the ideal college. All 
suggestions favored by the ma- 
jority were tallied and divided in- 
to broad categories. The only 
constraints placed on the class: a 
small, 4 year, liberal arts institu- 
tion where the primary emphasis 
is teaching. I thought that you and 
the readers of The Quad might be 
interested in the results of the pro- 
ject. I have included all of the 
suggestions, whether workable or 
not, because the goal was to 
design the ideal college, not to 
redesign LVC . The exercise was 
useful because it made the 
students aware of what they, and 
their classmates, perceive as im- 
portant in an institution dedicated 
to higher education. The list of

To the Editor: 

In the September 12th issue of 
The Quad you published a 
beautiful article about Bill Blatt 
(Rothermel), the custodian of 
Funkhouser East. Specifically my 
attention was called to the part 
where he relates his role as the 
away-from-home-father to a 
foreign student. Because this is 
the real father writing. 

Bill Blatt did not only visit the 
Venezuelan student during the 
time he stayed in a hotel when 
dorms were closed. He gave 
moral and occasionally financial 
support, when funds where low 
and the remittance had not 
materialized; he wrote letters 
with funny and serious contents, 
but always stimulating and con- 

of Trustees would be flexible, 
visible, young, open, reasonable, 
and involved. The faculty and ad- 
ministration would have open 
lines of communication. The col- 
lege would enjoy an ideal reputa- 
tion, offer several ideal co- 
operative programs with other in- 
stitutions (ideal or otherwise), 
and have an active program for 
study abroad. The ideal college 
would have a 'reasonable' tuition, 
sufficient financial aid, and a pro- 
gram to maintain financial aid 
levels beyond the freshman year. 
The student body would be a 
diverse group of ideal students in 
a 15 to 1 ratio with an ideal 


The ideal college would offer 
the ideal number of courses. 
These courses would be offered 
for an ideal variety of majors in 
proportion to an ideal faculty 
size. There would be no man- 
datory attendance policy and no 
mandatory physical education 
courses. There would be man- 
datory extended orientation pro- 
grams within every major and 
there would be an abundance of 
tutors available at all hours. The 
students and faculty of the ideal 
college would enjoy ideal lines of

also after the student left LVC 
(BS'83) to continue his studies at 
PACE University, White Plains, 

Bill took the time to analyze the 
weaker points of his "son" and 
send corrective suggestions, he 
pushed where there was room for 
pushing, and was the man one 
could always fall back upon. 

Now his "son" Harold has 
graduated (MBA '85) and is back 
to his home country, but the real 
father cannot express sufficient- 
ly his gratitutde for what Bill Blatt 
(and also his wife Anna Louise) 
have done for this family. We 
only hope that they can and will 
accept our invitation to come to 
Venezuela, whenever they see fit 
to do so, allowing us in a small 
way to reciprocate the kindness of

faculty received much attention. 
The professors at the ideal college 
would be excellent, creative, non- 
tenured teachers who stayed up- 
to-date in their respective fields. 
Ideal personal attributes would in- 
clude fairness, a caring attitude, 
an ability to adjust, and an open- 
ness to feedback. The ideal pro- 
fessor would also be able to relate 
to students with ease, would 
never be aloof, would only select 
relevant textbooks, and would be 
tied to his/her chair during office 


The buildings that house the 
ideal college would be located on 
a very attractive campus. There 
would be well-appointed, co-ed 
dormitories and solid athletic 
facilities. Students could have in- 
dividual phones at their option. 
The ideal college would have an 
excellent library with an ideal col- 
lection of periodicals. All of the 
campus buildings would be 
modern and they would contain 
the latest classroom and labora- 
tory equipment. All campus 
buildings would be open late to 
allow access to study areas and 
there would be a sufficient, if not 
ideal, number of pencil 


The ideal college would offer 
a wide variety of extracurricular 
activities including a good sports 
program. The ideal college would 
allow students to seek off-campus 
housing and would have fraterni- 
ty and sorority houses. The ideal 
college would also have a work- 
able alcohol policy with a pub on 
campus. There would be good 
promotion of weekday and eve- 
ning activities, a good events 
calendar, and good communica- 
tion of activities to commuters. 
Finally, the ideal college would 
have excellent food; cold cuts and 
fish would be offered only a 
reasonable number of times.

and needless to say, I didn't 
remember very much when I

at LVC. 

I had high expectations when I 
walked in the door of the Little

Matthews and Steckman were

Although their movement was 
sometimes awkward, Zeiber and 
Kreiser worked well together in 
their roles as friends and foes. 

The comic relief of John 
Bishop and Dave Filbert as Henry

extra to the play. Bishop's acting, 
coupled with his British accent, 
was just magnificent; and Filbert, 
in his stage debut, did a great 
dying act! I'll refrain, however, 
from making any comments on 
his British shorts....

LVC's football season ended 
disappointingly Saturday with a 
59-0 loss to Lycoming College. 
The Dutchmen finished the 
season 0-10. 

Lycoming scored five minutes 
into the game with a 43-yard field 
goal. A touchdown pass and a 
safety resulted in a 12-0 score for 
the first quarter. 

The second quarter saw two 
Lycoming touchdowns, a 6- and 
a 14-yard run and a 32-yard field 
goal to bring the halftime score 
to 29-0. 

In the third quarter Lycoming 
again scored two touchdowns, 
one on a 6-yard run, the other on 
a 62-yard pass (the latter failed to 
score the point after because of a 
blocked kick), and a field goal 
from 30 yards. Lycoming scored 
twice in the fourth quarter by 
returning an interception 40 yards

Edward Albee's, The Zoo 
Story, was presented Tuesday 
night in the Little Theater at 
8 PM. Directed by Tina Bakow- 
ski, the one act tragedy starred 
Ross Hoffman as Jerry and Dr. 
John Kearney as Peter. 

Presenting The Zoo Story was 
part of Bakowski's Indpendent

interest is the theater. Knowing 
she would be directing The Good 
Doctor, Tina decided to use that 
experience as one aspect of her

Hoffman supports this view

Leadership Curriculum 
Remains Under Study 

by Pete Johansson and 
Maria Montesano 

Many people have been in- 
volved with the formation of 
LVC's new leadership program. 

Besides the two internal leader- 
ship committees, consisting of 
members of the faculty and ad- 
ministration, mid-level managers 
from surrounding counties — 
some coming from as far as 
Philadelphia— have met with the 
president's staff to assist with the 

Also, a local businessman is 
guiding the marketing end of the 

Until now, the program has run 
on three levels: high school, col- 
lege and mid-level management. 
The fourth level— top-level 
management— will begin its in- 
volvement with George Miller's 
speech this week. 

Peterson said that he has much 

faith in the program, and he feels 
many other people do, also. 

Meanwhile, the Leadership 
Steering Committee, chaired by 
Prof. Warren Thompson, has 
continued to consider possibilities 
for an academic leadership pro- 
gram. Thompson said that his 
committee is at this point only in 
the planning stage, and has not 
yet decided what format the pro- 
gram will take. Currently, the 
committee is examining leader- 
ship programs already in place at 
other schools, such as Suffolk 
County Community College, 
Albright College, University of 
Vermont, and Farleigh Dickinson 

Thompson explained that there 
are many directions the academic 
program could go. Some schools 

offer course for credit or non- 
credit courses, retreats, 
workshops, internships, or any 
combination of these. Specialized 
topics for Women, Greeks, Resi- 
dent Hall Governments, New 
Leaders, Peer Programs, Minor- 
ity Students, Commuting Stu- 
dents, and Faculty are among the 
options offered by other schools. 
LVC's program, therefore, 
would be unique to the college, 
as it may incorporate any of these 
topics. The committee hopes to 
present a detailed description of 
the leadership program to the 
faculty next semester, which will 
include catalog descriptions of 
courses or programs offered, if 
any. Thompson said that the 
academic program may or may 
not offer courses for credit, 
depending on what direction the 
committee takes. 





George D. Miller told an LVC audience recently that the athletes 
suffer most when the Olympics are used as political pawns. 

CUNY Prof Describes 
Months In USSR 

by Nancy Burnet 

"Soviets will try to buy 
foreigners' coats or other posses- 
sions on the spot," said historian 
a nd author, Dr. Edmond Pessen, 
Professor of American History at 
City University of New York. 

"I wanted no part of that cold 
Ptace, but I was called by 
Fulbri ght to represent them for 
a n entire semester, and I couldn't 
resist," Pessen said. He discuss- 
ed the trip to the Soviet Union 
Wl th his wife and they agreed to 
§°> feeling his country was call- 
m g on him. 

After his introduction, Pessen 
ex plained, "I'll speak only from 

my own experience and not 
emulate others and the opinions 
and thoughts they've sorted out." 

Pessen was impressed by the 
great warmth, thoughtfulness, 
and kindness of the Soviet people. 
He was treated as a "big gun." 
The Soviets want to keep the 
Fulbright program in a good 
light by treating Americans well. 

"Soviet facial expressions are 
grim," noted Pessen. They refer- 
red to his "very bearing" 
because of his independence and 
brashness— qualities the Soviets 
admired in him.

Olympic Official Speaks 

by Mark Carey 

The Secretary General of the 
U.S. Olympic Committee told an 
audience at Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege recently that he thinks no 
good has ever come out of a 
political boycott of the Olympics. 

Lt. Gen. George D. Miller 
(ret.), former Vice Commander- 
in-Chief of the Strategic Air 
Command, said political boycotts 
are "a self-inflicted wound" that 
helps no one involved. Now that 
Russia and America have seen the 
results of their boycotts, he says 
he thinks "both sides have learn- 
ed a lesson." 

Miller, who decided to accept 
the USOC position in 1984 
because it was a challenge he said 
he couldn't turn down, pointed 
out a difference between the U.S. 
and Russian boycotts. 

He said: "There was a signifi- 
cant difference, by the way, 
between those two boycotts 
—1980 and 1984— that should not 
get lost. That is, the U.S. Olym- 
pic Committee made the decision 
not to go to Moscow, but the 
Soviet government made the deci- 
sion that the Soviet team would 
not go to Los Angeles." 

He added that he thinks the real 
reason the Soviets boycotted the 
1984 Olympics may be that they 
feared losing against American 

In speculating about the 1988 
Olympics to be held in Seoul, 
South Korea, Miller said he 
believes the Russians will attend. 
He said although the Russians 
don't have diplomatic relations 
with South Korea, a spokesman 
for the USSR told him, "We are 
preparing to go." Miller said the 
response was ambiguous, but he 
nevertheless thinks they plan to 

The Soviets won't officially an- 
nounce their decision until three 

months before the games, he said, 
the official deadline for a coun- 
try to announce its intention. 

Another problem in the nego- 
tiation of the 1988 Olympics, said 
Miller, is that North Korea wants 
to host half the games. He said it 
is unlikely, however, that the In- 
ternational Olympic Committee 
will accede to their wishes for 
two reasons: first, it is un- 
precedented to split the Olympics 
between two cities, and second, 
North Korea is completely un- 
prepared for the games. 

Miller said he is apprehensive 
about the reaction of the North 
Koreans if their demands are not 
met, since they "have the poten- 

tial for violence." On the other 
hand, he said he feels that South 
Korea will provide "adequate 
security" for the athletes if any 
problems arise. 

"I don't think any nations 
would or should stay away 
because they anticipate vio- 
lence," said Miller. "Violence 
could occur anywhere." 

Miller said he thinks it is un- 
fortunate that the games must be 
used as "political pawns," since 
the athletes are the ones who suf- 
fer the most. But he expressed 
belief that the Olympics will one 
day transcend politics again to 
foster unity among nations, as 
was their original purpose.

p. 2 THE QUAD Thursday, December 12, 1985 



by Pete Johansson 

Whenever people on campus discuss the alcohol or intervisitation 
policies, a certain fact is bound to come up. That is that Lebanon 
Valley College carries an affiliation with the United Methodist Church. 
Some people complain about this, maintaining that the only thing the 
money we get from them does for us is keep us from drinking. 
Whether or not this is true is beside the point. The fact is, if we are 
going to be affiliated with a religious group, the Methodists aren't 
really bad people to hang around with. Consider the alteratives: 

Islam: Several times a day, every day, some prominent student, 
faculty, or administration leadership-type person would have to scale 
the Administration Building and call the faithful to face Mecca and 
pray. While this in itself might help unite the campus community, 
the effect on class schedules would be disastrous. The Student Con- 
duct Code would be a great deal more rigorous (written warnings 
would be replaced with dismemberment, SJB with death), and the 
cheerleaders and female sports teams would be handicapped by a dress 
code that prohibited exposure of the female form. 

Calvinism: For John Calvin, the word of the day is "predestina- 
tion." Think of the academic ramifications of such a policy. Your 
first day on campus, the registrar would print up your final transcript 
for your four years at LVC, which would be kept hidden from you 
until several years after graduation. You would still have to attend 
classes, take exams, and write papers, but since your grades would 
be predetermined, studying would be a noble, but pointless activity. 
While this might sound like an ideal way to spend four years of 
college (especially for the "elect") few students would be able to stand 
the suspense of knowing whether or not they would graduate, and 
in what field they would receive a degree. 

Orthodox Judaism: True, there would be more days off for religious 
holidays. However, if you think you're busy now, imagine the series 
of prayers that would need to be added to get you through your daily 

routines. When you consider that strict dietary laws require meat and 
dairy products to be prepared separately, with a whole other set of 
kitchenware for Passover, the expense of keeping up four dining halls 
would be too much for the average student to afford. Besides, nobody 
would want to go to a school that gives written warnings for eating 
a cheeseburger, and we'd have a hard time finding professors 
willing to make up an extra exam for Elijah. 

Buddhism: Professors would be indistinguishable from students, 
in fact would not in all practicality exist. Which wouldn't make that 
much of a difference, because any professor you could find would 
be quick to point out that there is no reality behind anything going 
on in life, college included. While this would take pressure off finals 
week (which wouldn't exist, by the way), the dissolution of the 
registrar's office would hamper post-collegiate success. 

Jehovah's Witness: The campus would be empty, with every 
member of the campus community on the road preaching and 
distributing copies of The Watch Tower. 

Lutheranism: The only noticeable difference is that, true to the 
heritage of Martin Luther, beer would be served with every meal. 
While this might seem to be an advantage, imagine what the food 
would taste like if Dining Hall employees were continually drunk. 

Conservative Fundamentalism: Imagine taking a genetics course 
from a professor who took evolution as a personal affront. One can 
clearly understand the implications for the Student Conduct Code, 
but academic life, particularly in traditional liberal arts areas like 
English, Sociology, Philosophy, and Education might take on posi- 
tively gruesome aspects. 

So it's not so bad being among all these Methodists. Even if we 
might have them to thank for the current alcohol policy, they're 
relatively silent on other matters. We don't bother them, they don't 
bother us. All in all, it's a pretty good arrangement. 

Merry Christmas. 

In the Spirit 

by Lorraine Englert 

Is everybody ready to hear my opinion on another campus issue? 
No, I did not think you would be. Therefore, to accommodate the 
mood of the season, I arrived at an editorial that is more reminiscent 
of a helping hints column rather than an editorial that is designed to 
stimulate your thoughts. So, sit back and enjoy. Hopefully, those of 
you who still have not completed that Christmas shopping list will 
like some of these ideas. (Not to mention those people, who I know 
are very few indeed, who have not even started to select Christmas 

Gifts with that personal touch are often the nicest thing to receive 
during the holiday season. Even better for those who need to be money 
conscious at this time of the year, gifts created at home tend to be 
less costly albeit more time consuming to make. Here are just a few 
ideas for homemade gifts. First, for anyone who can sew or even 
just knows how to make a seam, there are very simple easy-to-make 
patterns out for everything from stuffed toys for the little ones to a 
simple sheer skirt for Mom or a tailored shirt for Dad. Anyone with 
access to a jig saw has it made! Wooden decorations are the "in" 
thing in household decor. I am not merely referring to decorations 
for the tree or the Christmas season, I mean those very basic wooden 

figures which are so predominant in any craft store (and so very 
expensive to buy). For the children there is always the traditional 
jigsaw puzzle which so many of us had to make in wood shop. Believe 
me, if I can make one, anybody can! 

Now, on to some gifts that do not require quite as much skill or 
effort but still are not run-of-the-mill fare for those people who no 
one ever knows what to get. Anything alive. No, I am serious. 
Especially for those who are accustomed to artificial trees, how about 
a nice pine wreath to brighten up the atmosphere even more. For the 
nature buffs out there, go on a stroll through a wooded area, find 
some Princess pine and some holly, buy a beautifully bright red bow 
and with a little effort you have a wonderful gift. FOOD! Food is 
always a staple gift during the holiday season and never less 
appreciated for it. People can always use food. Naturally there are 
a large variety of breads, cookies, candies and other holiday treats 
available to the would-be baker. There is also the option of a less 
caloric culinary treat designed for those people, who despite the 
season, can not indulge in the sweeter delectables due to dietary restric- 
tions. Also, almost everyone has one type of food or one special treat 
that they will not buy themselves because they feel it would be 
frivolous to do so. Despite this, they will be delighted to receive it 
(after defending themselves with a few mild "you shouldn't haves" 
of course). 

Here is one last note to consider. It may appear to be a little off 
the subject of gifts. Be this true or not, it still is very definitely a

As I write, the world political 
climate continues to seethe and 
bubble as always. There is 
however, one area of conflict that 
is only beginning to become 
newsworthy, and it's about time. 
Angola is in the news again. Not 
because there has been a coup or 
anything, but because the U.S. 
Congress is finally considering 
doing something to help the 
forces of freedom there. 

Back in 1975, ten full years 
ago, Portugal finally pulled out of 
Angola, its colonial possession of 
centuries. Immediately, the coun- 
try became embroiled in a civil 
war of three factions. The Soviets 
and their allies, primarily Cuba, 
which was only beginning to 
cause trouble as it has since in 
Nicaragua and El Salvador, pro- 
vided massive aid to the com- 
munist faction, which enabled it 
to seize control utltimately. What 
was the U.S. response? Nothing. 

Whether we are still experien- 
cing the post-Viet Nam distress 
syndrome or whether we were 
simply too concerned about strain 
on U.S. -Soviet relations, when 
the forces for freedom in Angola 
asked for our help, we failed to 
hear their cry. 

However, all has not been lost. 
UNIT A, the primary faction of 
pro-Western opposition to the 
communist regime there has 
managed to keep a foothold for 
these ten long years despite all, 
including massive airlifts of 
Cuban troops. Under the leader- 
ship of Dr. Jonas Savimbi, they 
have endured and are beginning 
to once again mount resistence 
for the cause of freedom in 
Angola . 

The Congress is now respon- 
ding to pressures by many con- 
servative groups to take up the 
question of aid to UNITA, 
however late it may be. 

But, at the same time, it ap- 
pears that a U.S. based corpora- 
tion in fact has been the one thing 
that has allowed the government 
of Angola to remain for so long-

there, has provided most of the 
income, through taxes, etc., that 
is keeping the Marxist regime in 
Angola afloat. 

That this is a double standard 
is apparent. Does Gulf truly 
realize that except for the revenue 
generated through them, the 
Communists would just as soon 
take away the freedom of their 
existence as a corporation? Com- 
munist economy and the free 
enterprise system are contradic- 
tions in terms. 

As you can imagine, a well 
funded corporation, such as Gulf, 
which incidentally has recently 
been bought out by Chevron, is 
much in opposition to a change in 
their favorable status quo in 
Angola. As congress attempts to 
grapple with aid to UNIT A, they 
are lobbying long and hard 
against it. 

But what can we do? Well, at 
the College Republican National 
Convention this summer, I and 
my fellow delegates voted to 
boycott Gulf and Chevron. The 
boycott has been organized by the 
CR's co-organization, the 
American Republic Foundation. 
They're currently gaining 
momentum nationwide. I am per- 
sonally boycotting Gulf and 
Chevron, and I call on all 
freedom loving Americans to do 
the same. Cut up your Gulf or 
Chevron credit card and mail it 
in to them, telling them that you 
do not support companies that 
support communism in Angola. If 
you truly believe in freedom, DO 

ROTC Growing 

Area Man Recalls 
Bigfoot Sighting 

by Christopher Craig 

Over the last several years a 
nationwide feeling of patriotism 
has grown. This national fervor 
has been illustrated by the 
stronger presence of the ROTC 
(Reserve Officers' Training 
Corps) program at college 
campuses. Lebanon Valley has 
not escaped this feeling of na- 
tional duty. The ROTC program, 
introduced last spring, has grown 
to include about five students at 
the college and is expected to 
grow to include several more 
students next semester. 

This growing interest in the 
ROTC program started during the 
spring semester of last year with 
the introduction of two military 
science courses instructed by 
officers operating the ROTC 
program at Dickinson College. 
Vincent J. Bulik, the senior 
leader on campus, started the pro- 
gram last year with ambitions to 
earn a ROTC Scholarship. The 
ROTC program is designed to 
ready students for a career in the 
military with graduating from the 
program with the rank of a 
second lieutenant. 

ROTC is aimed at giving 
students a feeling of responsibility 
and an appreciation for leadership 
qualities. This program combines 
classroom instruction with actual 
"field" experience. the 
classroom curriculum is based 
from four core courses in military 
science. Introduction to Military

part of the Christmas spirit. Go see people, spend time with them, 
let them know that they are still significant people in your life. If the 
distance is too great to cover in the short time you have, use the 
telephone and let them know how you feel. The U.S. Postal Service 
has proved reliable for many years now so you have no need to fear 
using that resouce. If you sent a card, it is always nice to enclose 
a letter and even photographs to make the recipient feel closer to what 
is happening in your life. In any case, gifts which are given are always 
appreciated. Always remember that the material gift is not the most 
important thing. The thought behind the gift is what is most 
important. Happy Holidays.

Science, Applied Military 
Science, Advanced Applied 
Military Science, and a course of 
Command of Staff are the major 
areas of instruction that students 
would be exposed. All of these 
classes are progressive, with the 
freshman student starting at the 
introduction level. "Field Ex- 
perience" is training in military 
activities at the Fort Indiantown 
Gap Complex. Instruction in use 
of guns, field orientation, climb- 
ing are a few of the activities that 
students participate in. At the pre- 
sent moment there are no credits 
given to students taking the 
courses given in military science. 
But, if approved by the school ad- 
ministration, students presently 
attending the classes would be 
granted credit retroactively. 

However impressive the ROTC 
program actually is, there appears 
to be a significant flaw. Instruc- 
tion in ethical conduct, peaceful 
action, and techniques to avoid 
military violence are not offered 
to the college student by the 
ROTC program. When asked, 
Capt. Shigley, an instructor in the 
ROTC program, admitted that 
currently there was little em- 
phasis on ethical behavior at the 
moment. He continued to add that 
consideration to introduce classes 
on ethical action is currently 
being done. 

ROTC is a unique way for an 
individual to earn a scholarship to 
pay for college and get an ex- 
cellent education that often gives 
graduates good job experience 
and unusual opportunities. Todd 
Sandt, a student in the ROTC 
program, speaks highly of the 
program. "This program gives 
me an education that developes 
discipline, responsibility, per- 
sonal confidence, and leadership 
skills while combining the 
military with academic life," 
claims Todd, who is considering 
a career in the military. Vincent 
Bulik, a ROTC scholarship can- 
didate, is the person responsible 
for encouraging on-campus in- 
terest in the ROTC program. 
Vincent believes that a ROTC 
experience would give him an 
excellent edge in the job market 
and give him ' 'valuable work ex-

A North Annville Township 
man who claims he saw "Big- 
foot" last September says he has 
never regretted reporting the 

Edward Kreamer, 22, of Ann- 
ville R. D. 3, described the public 
reaction to his sighting as "mix- 
ed." He said the publicity around 
the sighting never really gave him 
any problems, although he did 
have to put up with a lot of peo- 
ple asking whether he had been 
drinking. Kreamer spoke similar- 
ly of his friends' reactions to the 
Bigfoot sighting. 

"Some of my friends believed 
me and others just laughed," said 

According to Kreamer, the in- 
cident occurred about 12: 15 a.m. 
on September 6. Kreamer' s 
girlfriend was sitting with him on 
his enclosed porch just a few 
miles from the LVC campus 
when she saw a large, uniden- 
tified creature walking through 
the yard. Kreamer said the bark- 
ing of the family dog first drew 
his girlfriend's attention to the 

Kreamer said he went outside 
and yelled at the creature after his 
girlfriend told him what she saw. 
He said he also saw the creature 
silhouetted in the moonlight 
against a 6-foot-tall white fence 
about 50-75 feet away. The 
creature made no response to his 
shouting, but continued to walk 
away very rapidly, he said. 

Kreamer described the creature 
as being 6 feet 3 inches to 6 feet 
4 inches in height with an ape-like 
head and thick torso. He added 
that it was black with a long stride 
and stooping gait, and it appeared 
to have no neck.

The creature disappeared from 
Kreamer' s view as it walked into 
the darkness across the road, he 
said. According to Kreamer, a 
search that he made with his 
brother-in-law two hours later 
turned up no further evidence of 

In an effort to find out more 
about Bigfoot, Kreamer said he 
contacted Wayne King of the 
Michigan-Canadian Bigfoot In- 
formation Center in Caro, Mich. 
Kreamer had heard about King 
from a P.M. Magazine program 
last summer, he said, and got the 
address from the television sta- 
tion. King, in turn, conducted a 
telephone interview with 
Kreamer and then contacted the 
newspaper, according to 

Kreamer, however, voiced 
skepticism about the com- 
pleteness of King's investigation. 

"He just talked to me on the 
phone," said Kreamer. "The 
next day when the article was out, 
he said he believed it was an 
authentic sighting, but he really 
had no proof from the interview 
he gave me over the phone." 

Kreamer said that for the most 
part the media covered his 
sighting accurately and the 
reporters treated him politely. 
However, he pointed out that one 
article in the Daily News con- 
tained an error. According to the 
article, King's organization sent 
a representative to investigate the 
Kreamer sighting in late 
September. This investigation 
allegedly revealed physical 
evidence of Bigfoot in the area: 
"five busted trees, an unused 
cavern, and six indiscernable 
15-inch prints." Kreamer denied 
any knowledge of such a follow- 
up investigation. 

"He never sent anybody 
around here," said Kreamer. "I 
don't know where he got that in- 
formation from, but he didn't get 
it from me— and the only thing I 
can think of is that he just made 
it up." 

Although Kreamer said he 
doubts that he will see Bigfoot 
again, he said he is glad to have 
had the opportunity to see it at all. 

"It's kind of interesting 
because I never would have 
known about it if I hadn't seen 
it," he said.

On Friday, December 6, LVC 
celebrated its second annual 
Festival of Lights. Lights which 
illuminate the bushes and trees in 
the social quad were installed 
through the diligence of APO 
brothers. These lights will remain 
in place until near the end of 
finals week. Luminaries were set 
out at dusk by Gamma Sigma 

The evening's activities started 
at 5 p.m. with the trimming of the 
tree in the college center. Gifts 
donated to needy children were 
placed under the tree and are still 
being accepted. Singing in the 
quad began at 5:30 p.m. Par- 
ticipants in this activity were 
members of SAI and Sinfonia. At 
6 p.m. members of Wig & 
Buckle presented a live manger 
scene. The evening concluded 
with the Fellowship of Christian 
Athletes and the Council of 

Religious Organizations serving 
hot cider and donuts in Funk- 
houser Lounge. 

The amount of money raised 
for this event was $321.65. 
Organizations which donated 
money included: Student Coun- 
cil, The Quittie, FCA and APO 
as well as individual donors.

"Many in the Soviet Union 
couldn't care less what the 
American viewpoint is, but they 
have vast respect for American 
scholarship, achievement, and 
expertise," stated Pessen. There 
was little of what Pessen called 
' ' Marxist-Lenonist doctrinaire ' ' 

Students met with Pessen once 
a week in a conference hour. He 
felt it was his responsibility to be 
a good example and "teach like 
I had never taught before," 
especially as an ever-changing 
group presented themselves. For 
the oral final his students had to 
show knowledge of Jacksonian 
America and equal knowledge of 
their topics of concentration. 

Soviets were disconcerted to 
find that Americans do not con- 
sider historians "servants of the 
state." He quoted John Quincy 
Adam's reply to the question as 
how to go about writing history: 
"The historian must write as 
though he has neither country or 
religion. ' ' He must state the truth. 
As Adams also said, "When my 
country is in the wrong, I cannot 
call on God to help my country." 

"Soviet students are interested 
in American history and 
American music, and are mad 
about American clothing," said 
Pessen. "They have a profound 
yearning for good relations 
between the U.S. and the Soviet 

"World War II looms large in 
their thinking. There is a con- 
sciousness of the war even now, 
as the Soviets lost 20,000,000 of 
their countrymen in World War 
II." Gorbachev made the state- 
ment that America's help was 
most valuable during the War. 
Pessen would like him to have 
used the word "indispensible." 

Pessen' s lecture was the second 
in a series presented by the LVC 
History and Political Science 
Department. The next, and final 
lecture in the series, is "America 
in Vietnam: The Role of the 
Press," by Dr. William Ham- 
mond of the U.S. Army Center 
of Military History, April 4.
